PGEX: An Exploration of Cutting Edge Governance Arrangements

1 minute read

This paper builds on earlier IOG work on the influence of distributed governance on policy alignment and accountability. The authors have compiled eight case studies of cutting-edge service delivery models that combine organizational features or blend public, private and not-for-profit organizations together in new ways. Then they examine these in the context of the IOG’s governance continuum hoping to throw some light on the accountability-performance trade-off which occurs when governments explore service delivery options outside of traditional bureaucratic structures.
