OUTSOURCED MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC SERVICES IN AFRICA
The book is currently not available in English
This book focuses on three main topics:
- The improvement of the performance of public operators and the quality of the public service they provide
- The outsourcing of public services to large international private groups as currently practized.
- An unprecedented proposal to reform the mode of intervention of the large international private operators so that this intervention is effectively and unconditionally part of a process of sustainable development of the sectors where the management of public services is delegated to them.
It also defines all the notions related to these subjects.
Its main objective is to provide the public entities entrusted with the management of essential public services (ministerial departments, local governments or local authorities, etc.) with the tools and skills necessary to carry out the sustainable development of the sectors whose management is entrusted to them, whether through the improvement of the performance of the public operator or through a partnership with the private sector delegating to it the management of part or all of the management of the public service in a given sector of activity.
Its content applies to all essential public services (production and distribution of drinking water and electricity, transport and road construction in urban areas and liquid and solid sanitation).
