How can governments deliver better services under fiscal pressures? How to build a more effective and performance-oriented public service? How to promote an open and transparent government? How to choose strategies for implementation, strengthening strategic capacity, fostering horizontal coordination and increasing resource flexibility in the public sector?
To discuss these and other core issues of public governance, Ministers and senior officials from 37 countries and organisations met in Venice, Italy, on 15 November 2010. The general theme of the meeting was “Towards recovery and partnership with citizens: The call for innovative and open government". The meeting was hosted by the Italian government, and chaired by Minister Renato Brunetta (Italy), with Mr. Stockwell Day (Canada) and Mr. Terry Moran (Australia), as Vice Chairs. Minister Francis Maude (United Kingdom) chaired a breakout session on open government, and Professor Mario Monti Bocconi University, Italy) gave a keynote address on the challenges of implementing public sector reform.
This publication presents an overview of initiatives in the field, in 31 countries. It reflects country submissions prepared for the meeting and representing the situation in their respective national settings as of the third quarter of 2010. The questionnaire used for collecting the information is presented in Annex A for reference. The goal was to highlight the main policy initiatives to support the discussion among ministers.
In addition to this publication, the OECD Reviews of Public Governance offer a fuller analysis for selected countries. The flagship publication Government at a Glance presents a comprehensive, comparative view of the workings, resources, processes and outputs of governments across a wide range of countries. Other OECD thematic reports explore issues like integrity and the prevention of corruption, budgeting, service delivery, human resources and e-government in more detail.
This report presents an overview of country initiatives concerning efficient, effective public services and open and innovative government. It focuses on four core issues: delivery of public services in times of fiscal consolidation; a more effective and performance-oriented public service; promotion of open and transparent government; and strategies for implementation of a reform agenda. These issues were discussed at the OECD Public Governance Ministerial Meeting held in Venice, Italy, in November 2010, hosted by the Italian Ministry for Public Administration and Innovation.
