This study aims to comparatively analyse the contracting-out process of public services in local government, focusing on two different sectors of social welfare facilities and refuse collection. Cases were collected from Daegu Metropolitan City and its district offices, and document research and interviewing were mainly used as research methods.
The process of contracting-out in this study was classified five stages, including the inducement of competition for contracting-out, the selection of trustee amongst several competitors and the making of a written contract, the supervision and monitoring by local government, the evaluation of results, and the process of recontract. In accordance with these five stages, this study postulated theoretical framework in order to explore the realities of contracting-out process in local government, and the cases in two different areas of public services were adequately analysed under the guidance of this theoretical framework.
However, results of this study reveal that the realities of contracting-out process in local government are far beyond in satisfying the expected level, which is theoretically assumed in this study, irrespective of the characteristics of two different public services.
