OECD Journal on Budgeting

The OECD Journal on Budgeting is published three times per year. It draws on the best of the recent work of the OECD Working Party of Senior Budget Officials (SBO), as well as special contributions from finance ministries, academics and experts in the field and makes it available to a wider community in an accessible format. The journal provides insight on leading-edge institutional arrangements, systems and instruments for the allocation and management of resources in the public sector.

A Framework for Public Sector Performance Contracting

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."
