Accenture establishes public service institute

Management consulting and technology services provider Accenture has formally unveiled its Institute for Public Service Value.

The facility, initially with centers in London and Washington, D.C., plans to bring together academics, officials and government service providers for discussions and conferences on improving government, policy and services.

According to an announcement, the institute will undertake discussions and research aimed at improving public policy worldwide. It also plans to hold a small number of conferences each year.

The institute “represents a commitment to determining how governments and other public service organizations can provide greater benefits for their constituents by focusing management on creation of public value,” said Greg Parston, director of the Accenture Institute for Public Service Value, in the statement.

The institute was formally launched today at its Unlocking Public Value forum, which featured remarks by professor Mark Moore of Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and Philip Cullum, deputy chief executive at the National Consumer Council.
