Overview

For what and to whom are bureaucracies answerable? How are they held accountable? This successful text examines these questions, primarily in the context of the federal bureaucracy. Building upon the second edition, Professor Rosen has updated the entire work to incorporate significant subsequent developments. Among the most important of these are the Chief Financial Officer Act of 1990, the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, and the Government Management Reform Act of 1993. These three laws, along with the Clinton administration's National Performance Review initiative, have the potential to substantially improve performance and accountability.
