image of Government at a Glance 2015

Government at a Glance provides readers with a dashboard of key indicators assembled with the goal of contributing to the analysis and international comparison of public sector performance. Indicators on government revenues, expenditures, and employment are provided alongside key output and outcome data in the sectors of education, health and justice. Government at a Glance also includes indicators on key governance and public management issues, such as transparency in governance, regulatory governance, public procurement and the implementation of employment and remuneration reforms since 2009. While measuring government performance has long been recognized as playing an important role in increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of the public administration, following the economic crisis and fiscal tightening in many member countries, good indicators are needed more than ever to help governments make informed decisions regarding tough choices and help restore confidence in government institutions.

Stakeholder engagement

The central objective of regulatory policy is to ensure that regulations are designed and implemented in the public interest. It can only be achieved with help from those concerned: citizens, businesses, civil society, public sector organisations, etc. The 2012 OECD Recommendation on Regulatory Policy and Governance recommends that governments actively engage … all relevant stakeholders during the regulation-making process and design … consultation processes to maximise the quality of the information received and its effectiveness (OECD, forthcoming). OECD member countries acknowledge the importance of listening to the voice of users, who need to be part of the regulatory development process. Moreover, stakeholder engagement is commonly considered as a key element of an open government policy.
