ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze the effect of central government 's transfering into Sejong City on the quality of policy decisions. The effects were measured based on the three theories (geographical proximity, decision making under time pressure, and group discussion) presented in previous studies. For this purpose, we used the survey results of 254 public officials in 10 central government departments. Using DID analysis We found two major results. First, the opportunities for face-to-face contact and the reduction of group discussion opportunities have had a negative impact on the quality of policy decisions. Second, the effect of relocation of Sejong city was different according to the rank, the work personality and residence. Therefore, in the future policy, it is necessary to prepare an alternative considering the position and the work personality with increasing the opportunity of face-to-face contact and group discussion.
