dc.description.abstractThe study examines the rationale and application of good governance principles in the public sector. For the purpose of this study, the public sector refers to a country’s administrative system or bureaucracy. This paper focuses on public sector reform in developing countries. The initial assumption is that public sector reform brings about efficient government. However, the study argues that only good governance brings about effective government. The argument presented in this study is that public sector reform is indeed conducive to providing efficient and effective service delivery to the citizen. However, it is also argued that it is important to find ways of assessing whether or not this is happening. In this respect, systems of monitoring and evaluation such as performance measurement become necessary tools of assessing how it contributes to good governance.en_US
