Hide / Show Abstract

OECD Member countries have grown increasingly interested in the use of

contract type arrangements in the 1990s as a means of improving public sector

performance. This interest reflects a number of broad challenges to traditional

governance structures. These challenges include the demand for greater efficiency

through highly adaptive and flexible public sectors and the increasing pressure of

accumulated public debt and fiscal deficits. "Governments must strive to do

things better, with fewer resources, and, above all, differently."
