    Local intelligence backed by global insight.

Harness the power of independent advice

Achieving economic, environmental and social outcomes for local communities is a big job. Councils’ ever-expanding operations include statutory and traditional services like waste collection, recreation and town planning as well as emerging and non-traditional services, such as aged care.

Across all areas, councils are under pressure to balance cost effectiveness while leveraging assets and generating revenue. Councils are also expected to keep pace with innovation and change without compromising risk and compliance. This requires councils to manage workforce capabilities, and be equally focused on developing systems, processes and technology.

Our team understands the local government environment. We help councils understand where they’re at and provide advice on how to improve and grow. Our specialist local government advisory services cover:

  • Independent assessments
  • Financial stewardship
  • Service delivery
  • Capability development
  • Systems, processes and technology

Backed by one of the world’s leading global networks, BDO’s local intelligence and global awareness enable our team to deliver insightful advice local councils need.
