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.



Overview of countries' open government initiatives

The purpose of this publication is to present an overview of recent reform initiatives and policy packages across a broad set of OECD member and non-member countries. The information is based on profiles provided by countries for the meeting of the OECD Public Governance Committee at ministerial level held in Venice in November 2010. The goal was to facilitate a high-level debate among ministers on the key challenges of public sector reform, drawing out common issues as well as divergences, and analysing the possible gaps in current policy packages.
