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.




Following the Cabinet decision concerning the Budget Formulation Reform in October 2009, the National Policy Unit published guidelines for improving the disclosure of information on budget execution as well as for budget monitoring and promoting efficiency teams (published in March 2010), which was followed by the implementation of budget monitoring and the establishment efficiency teams in each agency. This will be followed up through meetings of the team leaders.
