Our consultants work with senior officials to develop and implement innovative strategies that deliver lasting results.
Overcoming Challenges with Confidence
State and local governments are currently at a crossroad with increasing challenges on how to reduce waste, constrain spending, improve performance and maintain reasonable yet competitive levels of taxation. On top of that, finding new ways to attract, grow and retain both business and industry remains essential to long-term economic sustainability.

Enabling administrators to maximize productivity while responding to change responsibly with confidence.

Smarter government begins with smarter planning and the realization that transformation across your organization is now the price of entry. With Guidehouse on your side, you can unleash the full potential of your agency, your citizens and your community toward achieving your mission.
Operational and Organizational Excellence
Transforming your agency from “good” to “great” doesn’t just require solid leadership and a bold vision. It demands a carefully designed roadmap; a plan tailored to the people, processes and technologies set in place to move your organization forward. For when each has been optimized, and converged in alignment with your mission, there is no limit to the impact you can make.
Guidehouse is here to help you identify, and focus on, the areas with highest potential for breakthrough results with insights across:
- business process innovation
- organizational design
- change, financial, and project management
- cost reduction strategies
- performance metrics
Working in close collaboration with your team, Guidehouse will assess your current operational structure, identify inefficiencies and create incentive programs that reward outstanding employee contributions. It’s this people-first philosophy that inspires more than simply desire for change, but the willingness to stay engaged and devoted to the collective vision.
As trustees of constituent tax dollars, state and local government agencies must strike a balance between managing risks and capitalizing on opportunities. From financial strategy to operations and compliance, Guidehouse will help empower your people with enhanced ability to identify, assess and mitigate risk while improving performance across every level.
Our risk management experts will help you plan for the future while staying focused on the pitfalls and perils of today with solutions like:
- enterprise risk management (ERM)
- internal controls and reporting
- governance, risk and compliance protocols
- policies and procedures
- reputation management
- audit readiness and remediation
- risk oversight
- management of grants
Risk is certainly never meant to manage the enterprise. Rather to win, the enterprise must be prepared to anticipate and manage risk. With innovative methodologies fueled by the latest technologies, Guidehouse will help navigate you through the modern vortex of disruption to leverage every opportunity for reaching your mission. Faster. Smarter. Better.
Guidehouse understands that your agency may have a love-hate relationship with technology. One on hand, it provides invaluable tools without which executing your mission would be impossible. On the other, outdated legacy technology systems cause endless frustrations, and upgrading can cost dearly in time, capital and human resources.
Helping your agency employ technology as a catalyst for transformational change is our passion. In fact, we’ve enabled state and local governments across the country to become more innovative in areas such as:
- enterprise resource planning (ERP)
- customer relationship management (CRM)
- cybersecurity and privacy
- customer experience
- technology modernization
- program management
Digital disruption is transforming how, where and when business gets done. By leveraging advanced data analytics, agile processes and emerging technologies, Guidehouse can help you turn this disruption into opportunity. Enabling your organization to reach higher levels of efficiency and sustainability. Inspiring confidence across all ends of the enterprise.
Guidehouse is proud to serve agencies within
state and local governments including:

Response, Relief & Recovery for Superstorm Sandy
During New York State’s recovery response to Superstorm Sandy, the State reached out to Guidehouse to help them verify estimates of storm damage.

Thanks to the efforts of Guidehouse, the GOSR was able to quickly disburse recovery funds to those who needed them most, while maintaining compliance and a high caliber of customer service. Together they were able to efficiently and effectively shepherd an $8 billion Federal disbursement in disaster relief and recovery.
