federal and state government
Federal and state governments are being challenged to do more with less. The federal budget has substantially increased in the last decade as well as unfunded Medicare and Social Security Liabilities.
State governments also face a number of significant and continuing challenges from budget deficits to runaway Medicaid costs to increasingly important infrastructure issues. The next few years would be very difficult as state government face greater deficits and reduced revenue.
Demographic changes such as an aging population, impact of undocumented workers, public pension liabilities, demand for better education and health care costs are putting increasing pressure on state and local governments.
As debates over regulation, government spending, and welfare reform all demonstrate, the proper role of government in the nation’s economy remains a hot topic for debate more than 200 years after the United States became an independent nation.
It is now more important than ever to adequately address issues such as adequate levels of governance, effective use of technology, effective program and project management, establishment of risk management practices, business intelligence and strategy development.
