image of Governing Regional Development Policy

This report examines both the challenges and the opportunities associated with designing and using indicator systems as a tool for the governance of regional development policy. It draws on the experiences of a number of OECD countries and provides an in-depth look at the cases of Italy, the United Kingdom (England), the United States and the European Union.  It builds on previous OECD work on the governance of  regional development policy by extending lessons about contractual relations among levels of government to performance indicator systems.

This chapter explores the implementation of the Government Performance and Results Act and the Balanced Scorecard at the US Economic Development Administration (EDA). It begins by providing an overview of the history and programmes of the EDA before turning to the indicator systems used to monitor performance. The case study demonstrates the importance of using indicators to generate information that can be used for decision making on both a short- and a long-term basis.
