A new publication of the Centre looks at the results of a survey of samples of federal and Ontario public servants and discusses their implications for public service reform. The paper, called “Closing the Implementation Gap” is part of a series the Centre is producing on current issues in Canadian democracy.
The authors, Thomas Axworthy and Julie Burch, report on the results of the survey and of comment from roundtables at which it was discussed. They focus on three core issues in the management of the public service: capacity and performance improvements, attracting and retaining quality employees, and accountability design.
