Accountability Management in Intergovernmental Partnerships

  • Forces of globalisation and localisation are inducing national governments to shift many tasks upward to international organisations and similar organisations as well as downward to provincial and local governments. Mismatches between financing (revenue and expenditure capacities), policy and management competencies can give rise to accountability problems. Emerging “performance partnerships” between levels of government are a promising tool that could transform these agency relationships into contractual arrangements that reduce agency and co-ordination costs. The summary report as well as the case studies from different OECD Member countries identify different types of intergovernmental partnerships, analyse the weaknesses of their accountability management and point out solutions to strengthen accountability of intergovernmental partnerships.
