This report presents the results of an assessment of the organisation of the central government of Denmark. The study looks at reforms that are aimed at improving the quality of services (more value) and efficiency (less money) in central government. Starting with facts and quantitative benchmarks on the Danish central government, the study reviews recent reforms in Denmark, and makes recommendations in ten selected areas. The study concludes with a survey of the effects on the quality of services and the potential savings.




This report is the second country assessment to be published as part of the OECD study on value for money in government. This study, launched in 2008 on the initiative of the Dutch government, aims to identify new developments in the organisation of central government that are leading to better value for money: better services at lower costs for taxpayers. The first report in the Value for Money series was published in July 2010 under the title Public Administration after “New Public Management”. The second report was the country assessment of the Netherlands, published in May 2011.
