Emerging Issues in Public Service Procurement
On behalf of the Bernard Vanommeslaghe chair of ECARES at ULB and the Chaire PPP of the Sorbonne Business School, we would like to invite you on November 24th, to a half day workshop to get the opportunity to listen to the presentation of important new insights from research on underestimated or understudied dimensions driving public service delivery performance.
The idea is to focus on what happens to performance when intra-organizational incentives are taken into account and when the authorities assign non-traditional goals to public service providers (e.g. job creation or other social objectives for traditionally excluded populations).
The 3 papers to be presented provide new insights on the use of agency models to assess policy issues and are bound to lead to the identifications of new dimensions of the scope and limits of government intervention.
They are also opening the door to new research themes on regulation and public procurement.
The specific logistics details are as follows:
WHEN: 9am-13.15 apm, November 24, 2017
WHERE: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), 42, av. Roosevelt – 1050 Brussels, Ground floor –room R42.2.113
• Public policymakers and consultants looking for performance improvements in the services they are covering,
• Academics interested in frontier policy oriented empirical research
• PhD students looking for information on the latest in policy ideas to anchor research
The Workshop attendance will be limited to 40 people to facilitate interactions.
Slots will be assigned on a first come first served basis.
