Government Projects

Government leaders and agencies need to deal with a range of challenges and tasks that are often complex and ambiguous. CIG provides governments with practical advice and support to address policy and governance challenges.

CIG does not advocate or lobby for any partisan positions. We partner with governments on projects when approached or invited to do so by government leaders and public sector agencies.

Our support for governments is focused on providing actionable insights and recommendations, then working with our government partners to effectively implement the solutions they choose.

For this purpose, we draw on the decades of expertise in CIG’s Advisory Board, and our Faculty and Expert Panel. We connect governments with our global network of governance practitioners and experts, and former government leaders, who can speak with authenticity and from experience. This provides a strong foundation for CIG’s focus on practical and effective work with governments.

Our Project Partnership Model

We believe that different circumstances and contexts require different approaches. Hence, we first seek to thoroughly understand the goals our government partner is seeking support for.

We then work closely with our government partner to identify and tailor an approach that would work for them, and to provide them with support for action planning and implementation.

We partner with governments to translate their strategies and plans into execution and results. We do this by building quality implementation capabilities (e.g. tracking and monitoring), providing frameworks that are important to development (e.g. public finance and budgetary management), supporting the policy and planning process (e.g. policy and regulatory design), and enhancing their systems and processes (e.g. talent system design, implementation system design).
