Public Governance Reviews

 

A 360° VIEW ON GOVERNMENT PERFORMANCE


A public government review helps governments identify where they perform well and where they could improve the performance, sustainability and delivery of public value.  A review:

  • Assesses & provides recommendations on the capacities a country's central public administration.
  • Highlights a country’s governance strengths and the successes to date.
  • Analyses the governance challenges facing a country as it seeks to address the public policy issues.
  • Offers a strengthened evidence-base in support of well-targeted reforms to help government make the case for reform.
  • Discusses implementation strategies to drive the governance reform agenda to a successful conclusion.

 

IMPROVING EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS

 

  • Governments are concerned on how to cut costs as well as improve efficiency.
  • Reviews can help shed light on where and how public expenditures can become more efficient. 
  • Reviews offer advice through the sharing of good practices on bringing down the public deficit/debt.

 

BUILDING BLOCKS OF A PUBLIC GOVERNANCE REVIEW

The general model for a Public Governance Review focuses on the following core building-blocks for effective and efficient public governance: 

  • Strategy setting and steering. 
  • Implementing the strategy across the central government.
  • Linking the sub-national level with the strategy.
  • Trust in government, partnerships with civil society, and the delivery of public services.
  • Capacity-building across the public administration.
