This paper aims at analyzing the changing role of public managers in the context of the recent public sector reform, focusing on two research questions: first it tries to understand how the 'performance and merit' approach is perceived and if the rational of the reform is accepted and understood by public officers. Second it aims to verify if public managers consider efficient and effective the existing control and evaluation systems; and if the economic incentives are allowing a better performance of public officers, creating less bureaucratic and more managerial organizations.
