      As more citizens and their representative groups become involved in providing policy advice, assisting with program design and delivering services, the public service focus will move from arrangements based around contract management to also include collaboration and establishing alliances. The terrorist attacks in New York City and the Washington, D.C., area during catalyzed a massive upsurge in federal activities related to ¿homeland security,¿ with major reverberations among the state and local agencies responsible for delivering the bulk of first-responder and public health support.

The Batho Pele White Paper(Sect. 1.l) states that the South African Public Service will be judged by one criterion: its effectiveness in delivering services that meet the basic needs of all South African citizens. Laurie Goodman is a vice president at the Urban Institute and codirector of its Housing Finance Policy Center, which provides policymakers with data-driven analyses of housing finance policy issues that they can depend on for relevance, accuracy, and independence. Goodman spent 30 years as an analyst and research department manager on Wall Street.

      Many of these intergovernmental issues are addressed in this book, including health insurance exchanges under the now-threatened Affordable Care Act, and the roles of the federal, state, and local governments in food safety, energy, and climate butors interpret and assess the impacts of these and other issues on the future. Section 2 discusses the argued impacts of decentralization on public service delivery, and reviews the existing empirical evidence. Factors that are likely to influence the performance of decentralized service delivery are studied in Section 3, and Section 4 concludes the paper. Impact of Decentralization on Public Services: Theory and Evidence.
