Public sector

Governments and public sector organisations are addressing the great challenges of our time, from digital transformation to social justice, climate change, and post-pandemic recovery.

While unexpected crises demand an agile response, the day-to-day delivery of efficient, cost-effective public services must also be maintained. We’re working with governments and public sector organisations worldwide to meet this challenge by harnessing the potential of digital. Together, we deliver positive societal outcomes and mission-oriented innovation through citizen-centric design and technology.

Cloud, data and data ecosystems are also critical for achieving sustainability objectives. We provide both strategy and programme management expertise, and enable better use of data to inform impactful change programs. Because digitalisation raises important questions about sovereignty, we help clients navigate the complexity surrounding trust, security and privacy. As a trusted expert, we help clients make technology choices that put them in control of their digital futures.

What we do

For a long time, armed forces in Europe have managed logistics, supply inventories, wage payments, and personnel records through technology. Now, in the digital era, we connect ministries of defence to the new requirements of the data-driven world.

Groundbreaking new technology is positioning the health and social care sector to improve person-centered services along the care pathway. We partner across the industry with community care providers, hospitals, university clinics, and health ministries to help develop personalised care plans, both at home and in medical institutions.

Government agencies, federal ministries, city councils, and more are working to digitise processes and services for citizens and businesses. We help provide open data and high value datasets, biometric systems, e-government solutions, user-centered platforms, digital identities, and automated processing systems.

To help public security authorities deal with the digitisation of crimes, new digital tools, and new forms of citizen interaction, we have developed a range of digital services to support them across the globe.

We help tax and customs authorities with digital transformation in areas including the operation of tax offices, tax claim management, the future of work, fraud detection, custom border management, risk assurance, regulation analytics, and HR operations such as talent management.

Welfare agencies are facing significant challenges, including aging populations, digital engagement, policy reform, and growing demand for welfare support. Our expertise includes social benefits attribution, welfare fraud detection, job matching technologies, intelligent case management, and cloud migration.

              VP, Capgemini, Global Tax and Trade Cluster Leader
              While tax brings essential funds to economies, compliance depends on the perception of tax justice. Authorities must ensure fairness by closing the tax gap and bearing down on the non-compliant. This is both a national and cross-border issue and tax authorities are recognizing the value of data sharing and tackling new forms of evasion with innovative detection capabilities.
