Public policy analysis

Good public policy draws on economic frameworks to determine the nature of the core problem or opportunity and assesses options for the roles of government and of markets. With our experienced bench of former senior government policy thought leaders, we understand the policy process and the cutting edge of the issues to offer:

End-to-end policy advisory services and support

Strategy and agenda-setting


Central agency (Treasury, DPMC and Te Kawa Mataaho) experience needed to get proposals ‘over the line’

Domain expertise across key social and economic sectors
