The public sector’s needs and culture are unique and should not be viewed in the same manner as a private sector entity. The public sector delivers public goods and services to multiple stakeholders, including citizens, vendors, other governments and fellow employees. The determination of the amount and quality of services to deliver and the method(s) of service delivery are a strategic decision of the jurisdiction, given the constraints imposed on them by laws, regulations and revenues.
Lopez Consulting Group (LCG) consists of public sector specialists who all have executive “hands-on” experience in Public Sector and Not-For-Profit organizations, in addition to their “Big 4” consulting experience. Their experiences include Directors of State Department, Legislative Analysts, Executive Managers, Budget Officers, City Managers, and Chief Information Officers for State, Federal, and Local entities.
Their experience and expertise reflect an in-depth understanding of policy, operations, technology, and oversight. The understand the decision-making environment in which public sector administrators work and pride themselves in presenting solutions that are realistic, feasible and doable.
The decision-making processes in the public sector are also different than the private sector. Decisions are made in public (e.g. council meetings), debated in the press and impact the retention of management (e.g. the re-election of the council members). Working through this environment requires individuals who have “been there / done that”.
LCG has a primary focus in the following areas:
- Strategic Approaches
- Change Management
- Records Management
- Improving the Delivery of Service
- Performance Reviews
LCG is composed of former “Big 4” Partners, Directors and Senior Managers. LCG professionals are highly ethical and have adopted and conform to the Institute for Management Consultants’ Code of Ethics.
