This report presents an overview of country initiatives concerning efficient, effective public services and open and innovative government. It focuses on four core issues:  delivery of public services in times of fiscal consolidation; a more effective and performance-oriented public service; promotion of open and transparent government; and strategies for implementation of a reform agenda.  These issues were discussed at the OECD Public Governance Ministerial Meeting held in Venice, Italy, in November 2010, hosted by the Italian Ministry for Public Administration and Innovation.



Since June 2007, measures aimed at modernising central government public services have formed part of the overall framework of the “General Review of Public Policies” (Révision générale des politiques publiques, RGPP). The RGPP’s steering body, the Council for the Modernisation of Public Policies (Conseil de modernisation des politiques publiques), which met in June 2010 under the chairmanship of the President of the Republic, reaffirmed the priority being given to improving the quality of service delivery to users.
