Transparency and outsourced government services

March 17, 2015 - 11:32am

The Office of the Information Commissioner, in partnership with the Australian and New Zealand School of Government, is pleased to announce the launch of the Transparency and the Performance of Outsourced Government Services paper.

This paper is the fifth instalment of a series examining the impact of transparency and how it can be used as a strategic management tool.

The paper discusses three aspects of outsourcing; value-for-money efficiency, effectiveness of performance, and publicity of performance information and explores a number of lessons for both government and public sector managers on how to increase the extent of transparency and, thereby, the quality of performance of outsourced services.

  • Transparency Occasional Paper 1: Transparency and Public Sector Performance
  • Transparency Occasional Paper 2: Transparency and Productivity
  • Transparency Occasional Paper 3: Transparency and Policy Implementation
  • Transparency Occasional Paper 4: Transparency in Practice
