image of The UK Experience of Public Administration Reform

Public sector reform has moved on apace since the first of the Commonwealth Public Service Country Profile Series was launched in 1995 when the principles of New Public Management (NPM) were in an early stage of adoption. Since then, the various civil services described in the series have undergone radical change in scope, organisation and approach rendering a revision timely. Now up dated and completely revised, these reissued Country Profiles continue to be an accessible and valuable source of reference which attempt to both describe and analyse the often tumultuous and controversial public sector reforms which have taken place in contributing countries since 1995. Practising bureaucrats diplomats political and academic audiences will find these new books invaluable in benchmarking best practice in public sector reform across Commonwealth member countries.

Local Government

The United Kingdom has a long tradition of local directly elected bodies with some revenue raising powers delivering local public services. Many public services, such as housing, education, personal social services, refuse collection and fire services are provided by democratically elected local authorities. In central government, the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions is responsible for the overall legal and policy framework for local government, which is set out in a number of Local Government Acts.
