image of Value for Money in Government: Sweden 2013
This report presents the results of the assessment of the organisation of the central government of Sweden. 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 Swedish central government, the study reviews recent reforms in Sweden, 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 fourth country assessment to be published as part of the OECD Value for Money in Government series. The 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 in Government series was published in 2010 under the title Public Administration after “New Public Management”. Since then country assessments have been published on the Netherlands (2010), Denmark (2011) and Australia (2012).
