This review takes stock of the development and implementation of regulatory reform at a critical juncture for Lithuania. Confronted with the challenge of supporting growth and competitiveness, Lithuania has embarked upon an ambitious reform programme that addresses not only the development of new regulations but also the inspection and enforcement processes that support the effective implementation of these regulations with the least administrative burden for citizens and businesses. This is relatively rare among OECD members and the review assesses this comprehensive reform programme with a special focus on inspection and enforcement. First in its kind, the review benchmarks Lithuania's reforms against the OECD Best Practice Principles on Regulatory Enforcement and Inspection. The review identifies practical recommendations for strengthening regulatory effectiveness and support growth and competitiveness.
In this post-crisis period, restoring trust in governments is essential to reinforce and consolidate the foundations of modern states. It is also a necessary condition for governments to successfully carry out public sector reforms. But where do we stand on citizen's trust?
Je me suis rendue en janvier dans l’État mexicain de Tabasco, qui est situé dans le golfe du Mexique et traversé par plusieurs cours d’eau. Sa population a doublé au cours des 30 dernières années et son économie dépend essentiellement du pétrole et du gaz naturel. Les défis ne manquent pas : chômage, pauvreté, manque de ressources.
Selon un nouveau rapport de l’OCDE, les pays doivent redoubler d’efforts pour détecter et faire reculer les conflits d’intérêts et les autres atteintes à l’intégrité au sein de leur administrations; cela contribuera à rétablir la confiance à l’égard des autorités nationales, qui, d’après les enquêtes, n’a pas retrouvé ses niveaux d’avant la crise.

Government at a Glance 2015, published on 6 July, offers a dashboard of key indicators to help analyze international comparisons of public sector performance. Given the timing of the release, it seems appropriate to focus on Greece to gain a balanced understanding of the country's challenges and strengths.
Better access to and use of public sector information (PSI), including open government data, are inter-related parts of the shift towards knowledge-based economies, and drivers of innovation, growth and employment. PSI can be used directly to generate products and services, and it contributes in a wide variety of ways to improving efficiency and productivity across the economy (including within the public sector).

Agility is a tool that can help governments to not only maintain but even improve public services in a time of fiscal consolidation. Financial uncertainty is not the only challenge governments face today. Changing demographics, globalisation, climate change, risk of potential large-scale disasters are among the many others. Agility can help governments meet these challenges as well. It's also not enough to be "agile". Governments must be quick and responsive in a strategic way. This means being aware of emerging opportunities, being able to make tough collective decisions and stick to them, and mobilising appropriate financial and human resources rapidly and efficiently to where/when they are needed most. This publication is supports reforms towards greater strategic agility in the public sector including the use of budgeting policy levers, human resource management strategies and ICTs. It presents, in a sense, a toolkit for reform, together with a broader framework for action, taking into account the enabling factors and potential risks that may occur. This report is also an attempt to show that the public sector has the capacity to reinvent itself during difficult times and that large public sector organisations are able to take on the challenge.
