Public-Private Contracting: Performance, Power, and Change at Work
This chapter raises two questions largely absent from other studies: how are performance gains (and losses) distributed between unequal partners and how do changing organizational boundaries shape the employment relationship? These questions are illuminated by analysing four different forms of public-private contracting arrangements. Section 5.1 provides a brief overview of evidence to date concerning public-private contracting arrangements and their implications for performance and employment. Section 5.2 introduces the four case studies. Sections 5.3, 5.4, and 5.5 analyse the data by exploring issues of performance, power, and change at work, respectively.
