Public management reforms

OECD review on Finnish Public Governance Review was published on the 31st of May 2010

Ministry of Finance has commissioned OECD (Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development) to do a comprehensive Public Governance Review on Finland. Ms Kiviniemi, Minister of Public Administration and Local Government, thanked the OECD for a valuable report which provides Finland with good bases for deciding what action needs to be taken. From the following link you may read the main assessment and key recommendations:

The reasoning behind asking for an OECD Public Governance Review is to get an outsider’s view on our reforms. The Finnish public management reforms of the 1980’s and 1990’s have earlier been considered to be one kind of a success story. And Finland has been able to implement quite comprehensive reforms. The reforms have been going on actively for the whole current decade and the latest Government Programme from 2007 has an exceptionally large amount of public administration reforms.   

The Ministry of Finance has published a background report on Finnish Governance Reforms in connection with the review. The idea of this background report is to give further information to the international readers on the Finnish governance and steering structures.
