The Role Transition Researches of the Government in Public Service Outsourcing


Public service outsourcing is a modern public service supply pattern, which the government takes advantage of the market and society to product and supply public services. Because of the characters of innovation, fashion and practicability, public service outsourcing has shown its multiple values and has been popular with the local government. The government mainly plays the role in rule-maker, public service-buyer and order-supervisor. However, in the process of role transition, our government faces ideological, institutional and ability obstacles, either. Therefore, with the purpose of reducing government outsourcing obstacles and improving the level of government management and service, this paper tries to establish a relatively complete system of public service outsourcing and offers several suggestions including perfecting the institutional construction, establishing diversified safeguard mechanisms and strengthening the construction of the government to build a service-oriented government.
