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.



Overview of previous Danish reforms

This chapter discusses the three main periods of restructuring of the Danish government sector: the 1980s, the 1990s and the 2000s. The only real overhaul of the Danish budget process in the last 30 years was the budget reform carried out in 1984-85. Other elements of reform over the past 30 years include devolving responsibility to agency heads and enhancing the accountability dimension.
