- Managing enterprise risk
Interest in enterprise risk management (ERM) is growing fast among federal agencies, as well as State and Local governments. A number of them have appointed a chief risk officer to manage their ERM efforts. Government entities are starting to focus on enterprise solutions to manage risks that impact strategic and tactical objectives and use of resources.
Along with this, a number of agencies are looking to translate the concept of ERM past the abstract framework into practical solutions that will ultimately support risk enabled performance.
There is a need for more risk intelligent management of agencies so that future opportunities and threats to the agency’s performance are recognized and addressed timely and appropriately.
The EY Government and Public Sector Enterprise Risk Management team offers a proven methodology and approach to help agencies leverage their investments in complying with Office of Management and Budget Circular A-123 Appendix A and other requirements by identifying and replacing isolated initiatives and remediation fixes with a holistic approach to integrating internal controls, compliance and risk management initiatives under an ERM framework.

- New EY book reveals realities facing the next President-elect’s transition team
After Americans leave the ballot box in less than six months’ time, the incoming presidential administration will be faced with filling hundreds of key political appointments across the Federal Government.
To understand the challenges and opportunities involved in this process, Paul Lawrence, a leader in the Federal Government Consulting Practice of Ernst & Young LLP and Mark A. Abramson, President of Leadership Inc., present the findings of a seven-year study examining the full life-cycle of top political appointees in the Obama administration, charting their nomination and confirmation process all the way to their last days in office.
- Implementing category management in the federal government
Federal agencies are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs in the wake of ever-decreasing budgets. At the same time, these agencies are being asked to maintain and, in many instances, increase their level of service and responsibility. To avoid making unilateral cuts, federal agencies must look strategically at their portfolio of expenditures to determine the best levers to help reduce spending without sacrificing service. One lever is to take a more holistic look at the process of managing and procuring goods and services through the use of category management and strategic sourcing.
