General Management Consultancy Support

Social and economic development is leading to new needs and demands, and thus new expectations toward public service. Faced with these challenges, Government bureaux and departments have been striving for continuous improvement in their operations and deliverables. In the process, external resources in the form of management consultancy service are sometimes drawn in.

The Efficiency Unit provides support and advice to Government bureaux and departments with respect to the procurement of general management consultancy services. We also play the role of connecting the Government (users) and management consultancy firms (suppliers).

Government bureaux and departments can access detailed information on the registered general management consulting firms through the General Management Consultancy Services Portal at the Central Cyber Government Office (the Government Intranet Portal).

General management consulting firms can apply for registration in our register and provide up-to-date information on company profiles, service offerings, past experience and contact information.

For detailed information on the registered general management consultants, please visit the General Management Consultancy (GMC) Services Portal
