Contemporary issues in accounting and performance measurement in Public Sector
The seminar will provide a broad overview of contemporary issues in accounting and performance measurement research in the public sector in recent years.
In recent times, several governments have been involved in programmes of “modernisation”, which, in part, means that these public services now are significantly managed, delivered and governed by private, hybrid and third sector organisations.
A conceptual analysis of the accounting and public management literature will be used to evaluate the field and address a possible future research agenda.
