About the Conference
UWI’s first IRSPM Regional Conference at Mona provides an opportunity for new ideas and approaches to contend about how to bridge the technical and political issues associated with the goal of efficient and effective public services management.
The positive correlation between an optimally functioning public sector and the achievement of development goals has long been established and accepted. Sound financial management, an efficient civil service and administrative policy, efficient and fair collection of taxes, and transparent operations are identified as important contributors to efficient public services delivery and an effective public sector and ultimately a sustainable platform on which to pursue development efforts. An appropriate development strategy and robust public institutions have been cited as reasons for successes of countries on a growth and development path.
The conference will facilitate critical analysis of the developmental role of the public sector thereby contributing to the advancement of knowledge in the theory and practice of public and development management through dissemination of new research findings.
