Among those who rely on these services are the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of society. At the same time, funding of health, ageing and human services accounts for a high and increasing proportion of government outlays. Obtaining value for the taxpayer and satisfying community expectations are vital considerations.
Good outcomes in these matters result from strong management capabilities, robust reporting frameworks, the imaginative deployment of infrastructure and technology, sound operating systems and advanced financial skills. High quality external advice can help build these capabilities.
