One of the essential directions of the administrative reform constitutes a strategy of a new system of public management (New Public Management). As a kind of initial burst to establish the contours of the new management approach in the public sector in the 80s and 90s of last century, was an inadequacy and inefficiency, above all, of the traditional model of administration. The basic purpose of this management is to encourage the public sector to function as it functions the private sector.
Most of the contemporary authors, new public management define as a combination of so-called disaggregation (wherein the large bureaucracies are shattered and broken down in several smaller fragmented parts), followed by competitiveness (among various public organizations, including public organizations and private companies and between public organizations and non-profit organizations) and motivation of employees. Established in this way, the new public management is the dominant paradigm in the United Kingdom, the United States, New Zealand, Australia and EU countries in the period from the 80s of the last century until today.
The model of new public management focus on generating efficiency, effectiveness and economy of the administrative authorities, instruments and programs and delivery of services with higher quality. While the less attention is paid to the compliance of prescribed formal processes, rules and procedures.
With the establishment and development of the doctrine of “new public management” is plotting a process of release of the state from functions not intrinsic and plead to introduce elements of business management in the organization and functioning of the public sector. The transfer of the important activities of the private sector, de-monopolization and implementation of entrepreneurial mechanisms of government, it comes to a change in the concept of welfare state. While the modern welfare state is transformed into a coordinator of public policies that are supposed to ensure fairness in servicing customer service through competition and regulation and streamlining of various processes. This leads to significant cost savings “the costs” of the state, which can then be “redistributed” in achieving its social functions.
Keywords: new public management reform, administration, efficiency, effectiveness.
