Public Sector Restructuring
The need for reorganization or public expenditure control arises for the public sector to keep up with recession and government growth. This chapter provides an analysis of the ideologies of the British government regarding individualism, privatization, and most importantly, the primacy of markets. To contribute to the development of a conceptual framework of the process, this chapter takes a political viewpoint in looking into the limited impact of the nature of the administrative reform. This chapter looks at public sector organization on a system-wide level to evaluate the reform process and its effects on government. Sorensen's (1993) main conclusion is that it is impossible to bring forth a universal approach to this reform and that differentiated custom reforms should be applied.
