Contracting and Government: Some Further Thoughts
Author: EDWARD J. CLYNCH
Published in PAM, Vol. 4 No. 2
Because Frederickson's discourse on privatization is congruent with my own thoughts, this response is an effort to address two issues not directly covered in his paper: (1) the impact of privatization on the tension between professional administration and politics and (2) the financial implications of privatization for governments and the organizations that compose them. In particular, my comments focus on the major privatization tool, outsourcing or contracting out (Kettl, 1993).
