Sustainable Performance Of Public Organizations: Shaping A Coherent System For Implementing And Measuring The Concept


  • MIHAIU Diana

    (Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu, Romania)


The paper addresses a topical issue at the international level due to the present pressure exerted by an increased public debt on most national budgets, but especially in Romania where there is also a large gap between the scientific literature regarding the concept of public organizations’ performance and international literature. The gap is not only in the literature, but also in practices. Performance measurement may generate benefits for public organization and for society as a whole; it may help to improve public management, only if an internal system geared towards achieving sustainable performance was implemented. Otherwise, if public policymakers will continue targeting only the measurement of performance will increase and perpetuate the “performance paradoxes" cases. The objective of the paper is to design an internal system for public organizations oriented toward performance and its continuous monitoring, not only on its final measuring and reporting. To this end, I propose some modern tools adapted to public organizations’ characteristics, as instruments of a public management oriented towards obtaining sustainable performance.
