The impact of New public management on efficiency of work and quality of services in vocational education institutions


  • Eugenija GOLUBOVA



The paper analyses impact of New public management on efficiency of work and quality of services in public service institutions. Autonomy is one the principles of NPM that, according to the theory, increases efficiency of work and quality of services in public sector providers. However these assumptions have been scarcely researched in practice. To narrow this gap the experimental reform that implemented greater managerial and financial autonomy in 13 Lithuanian state vocational schools was chosen for research. In order to analyse autonomy’s impact on these variables after the reform, maximally similar institutions (of those that underwent the reform and that didn’t) are compared using quantitative and qualitative methods.
