International Journal of Public Sector Management
Article publication date: 1 October 1994
Addresses the general issue of the effective management of public relief programmes. Proposes that in the search for an appropriate guiding framework, public administrators could overcome some of the perennial problems stemming from lack of management continuity between ad hoc programmes by adopting the so‐called “privatization paradigm”. Develops a comparative analysis based on the Bureau of Indian Affairs′ (USA) recent effort to assist American Indians start and maintain viable business ventures. Argues that the substantial non‐securing management costs of business relief programmes could be reduced if administrators applied management models provided by privatization theory to the direction of their programmes.
