  • An Elected Official's Guide Competitive Options: From Managed Competition to Privatization
    • Targeting elected officials and public administrators, the GFOA's addition to its Elected Official's series, Competitive Options: From Managed Competition to Privatization, details the managerial perspective of managed competition and provides useful guiding principles and recommendations to practitioners. It reviews the theory and evidence on why involving the private or nonprofit sectors may lower costs or improve the quality of service delivery. Yet the book also highlights the conditions under which it may be preferable for services to be produced through public agencies and describes the questions that must be answered prior to introducing competition.
