PA 556 - Public Management Strategies for the 21st Century

Course Description: 

In the United States, an increasing proportion of the goods and services traditionally provided by governmental employees in the context of a governmental bureaucracy are now provided by outside contractors, or through indirect means such as social, economic regulation, tax policy, loan guarantees, vouchers, and manipulation of incentives for the private sector. This course is intended to provide students with an understanding of various tools used by governments throughout the West as the traditional rule-based bureaucracy is replaced by other types of institutions and other means to provide goods and services traditionally provided by government.
