ABSTRACT

This study aims at evaluating on financial efficiency of executive agencies during 5 years. Executive agency is a new government performance management system based on NPM(new public management). The agency CEO contracts his 3 years performance plan and is allowed enough autonomy and flexibility of management - personnel, financial management and so on. For evaluation, DEA(Data Envelopment Analysis) is used at 10 selected executive agencies. This study shows that new management system had no serious effects on financial efficiency of executive agencies. Contrary to government self evaluation, financial efficiency is not improved in executive agencies. The reason is that enough management autonomy is not allowed in executive agency. Government management - especially financial aspect - is very restricted its utility. The most efficient agency - The Mokpo National Hospital, Public Procurement Service - is a benchmarking at other new starting agencies.
