GOVERNMENT AT A GLANCE 2009 © OECD 2009 35 I. CURRENT AND FUTURE PUBLIC GOVERNANCE CHALLENGES There are limitations to citizen engagement which governments may need to recognise: participation of the “willing” may suffer from self-selection bias and can produce consultation fatigue. In some cases, citizens have insufficient information to properly assess the risks of policy options or the long-term implications of policy solutions targeted to today’s problems. Likewise, participation can add time to the policy making process.

Greater work may be needed on performance monitoring to better track the quality of services delivered and citizen satisfaction, as well as efficiency. 6 In some cases, the dynamic between citizens and government may also need to change. The New Public Management approach brought a view of citizens as consumers, and OECD member countries have gone further to view citizens as partners for designing, delivering and evaluating services. Many countries see that innovation and greater productivity in service delivery in the next few years are likely to come from highly professional service providers forging stronger collaborative partnerships with citizens, as the co-production, integration and tailoring of services can save money, reduce unnecessary activity and harness untapped resources (user time, energy and motivation).

How have countries with large numbers of political appointees/advisors addressed challenges with building capacity and developing a corporate memory in the broader “permanent” public service? Supporting evidence-based policy-making: Data collection and assessment The challenges facing governments have long-term implications and solutions will impact a large part of the economy. As a result, there are many vested interests arguing for one policy option over another. To better provide empirical advice to governments, the public service must be able to readily access and analyse relevant, neutral information.
