ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to give one of the rational principles to arrange the public institution in public service grouping. To this end, this study verified the effects of the public institution's types on their performance grounded the established goals of public institutions. The theoretical framework set on public sector outputs by Fukuyama(2004: 55-58) with specificity and transaction intensity using two indicators to measure financial performance and work efficiency, respectively. The analysis applied the difference-in-differences model using the data collected from reports of public institutions management evaluation performed by the Ministry of Economy and Finance in Korea. The results showed that services in high specificity or high transaction intensity tend to have lower the scores of significant business indicators than the other counterparts. Technology-oriented services with high specificity and high transaction intensity tested that the basic salary was high and the average rate of regular employees was high. This study found the criteria for that classifying the types of public services in low specificity in public institutions in Korea. This study contributes to the public sector's performance management by improving the understanding of public institutions.
