ABSTRACT

This study intends to describe the details of institutional change in the total payroll cost system with some empirical evidence, and point out both of the structural change of institution and the incentive mechanism change of institutional actors as the reasons for the institutional change. In addition, this study uses integrative approach on institutional change and institutional reform to suggest some alternatives of institutional reform in total payroll cost system based on the direction and influencing factors of institutional change. As a result, it is found out that the institutional change of total payroll cost system can be used as a tool for government downsizing. Moreover that change is resulted from the emergence of new policy paradigm after change of government and the strategic interaction between monitoring agencies such as the MOPAS and MOSF and implementing agencies such as central administrative agencies and local governments. With the implications of institutional change, several alternatives are suggested for reform in total payroll cost systems including strengthening effectiveness of downsizing tools, activating interactions between groups by widening the scope of budget items, and moving toward more autonomous systems of grading and payment.
