Global professional services firm PwC is to help the Bermuda Government complete its public service reform plan free of charge.

Government reform minister Lovitta Foggo, the government reform minister, said Government officials will also be asked to contribute to the plan in a process expected to be complete this summer.

Ms Foggo has had talks with key players for several months over the plan to improve the efficiency and quality of the public service.

She said: “We have made some significant and meaningful strides since the planning process began.

“I have engaged with many of our valued stakeholders, including my Cabinet colleagues, key internal Government personnel and representatives from Government’s various union partners.

“The meetings have been encouraging. Ultimately our strategic reform agenda will be guided by the tenets of transparency, agility, accountability, innovation, empowerment and sustainability.

“Our vision is a future-forward Government for the people of Bermuda. I wish to thank PwC Bermuda for their support in this regard and we look forward to the public service’s engagement in this process.”

Arthur Wightman, PwC Bermuda leader, said: “Governments around the world face many complex issues and are constantly challenged to deliver quality public services in the most efficient way.

“Public services reform is one of the critical challenges and opportunities facing Bermuda today.

“Central to the PwC network’s purpose - we work to solve important problems and build trust in society.

“Given our long-term focus on the success of Bermuda and evident momentum towards change we decided to contribute our services and expertise without any charge to the public purse.

“We are therefore pleased to work with the minister and the Public Service to deliver impactful and sustainable solutions which will benefit the people of Bermuda.”
