State & Territory Governments 

State and territory governments face many challenges in their quest to deliver services and improve the quality of life for their citizens. Budgets and resources are constrained while public expectations are higher.

State Government contacts
KPMG has dedicated teams that focus on individual Australian state and territory governments. For information, contact a KPMG adviser in your state.

Departments and agencies must find the right balance as they try to be more responsive and flexible while striving for greater efficiency and effectiveness.


While these issues are common to all levels of government, KPMG understands that there are distinct differences and challenges in the landscape and culture of each state and territory.


That is why we have dedicated teams in every state throughout Australia bringing to each assignment in depth local knowledge of unique environment in which each state government operates.
