Review of Evidence on Broad Outcome of Public Sector Management Regime
The paper summarises research material on the outcomes of the public sector management regime, with an emphasis on material produced from 1995 to 1999, covering the core public sector and Crown Entities. It identifies an apparent consensus about the strengths and weaknesses of the regime and evidence to support the consensus. Strengths include: more efficient production of outputs; a more responsive and innovative public sector delivering better services; improved financial accountability; and improved overall fiscal control. The main weaknesses identified relate to the effectiveness of the regime in delivering outcomes. The paper notes a widespread perception of a lack of empirical data on the effects of the reforms and comments on areas where further evaluation may be desirable.
