The

Pub­lic Fi­nance Man­age­ment Act of 1999 gave ex­panded man­age­rial au­ton­omy to pub­lic ser­vants while ex­pand­ing re­port­ing re­quire­ments to Trea­sury. This was ex­tended to lo­cal govern­ment in 2003, but Trea­sury of­fi­cials have ex­pressed dis­ap­point­ment with the re­sults. Bet­ter re­port­ing has not re­sulted in bet­ter ser­vice de­liv­ery, and there has been a fail­ure to hold in­di­vid­ual man­agers ac­count­able.
