Abstract

The Australian public sector experiences significant turmoil in performance information disclosures as it adopts New Public Financial Management oriented changes. While these changes aim to promote greater accountability, we raise concerns about the effectiveness of current disclosures, especially in Victoria, to articulate useful perspectives on performance, due to their high turnover, high novelty and low survival rates.
