|Title:||Paradoxes of Independence and Accountability in Commonwealth Regulatory Governance||Authors:||Scott, Colin||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7019||Date:||2004||Online since:||2015-09-14T16:07:23Z||Abstract:||It has often been said that the welfare or provider - state has been substantially displaced by ‘the regulatory state’. This claim refers to a complex set of changes in public management involving: the separation of operational from regulatory activities in some policy areas, sometimes linked to privatization of the operational activities; a trend towards separating purchasers and providers of public services through pol icies of contracting out and market testing; a trend towards separation of operational from policy tasks within government departments, notably under the Commonwealth Services Delivery Agency Act 1997. Each of these policies shifts the emphasis of control, to a greater or lesser degree, from traditional bureaucratic mechanisms towards mechanisms of regulation.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Australian Institute of Administrative Law||Start page:||14||End page:||35||Keywords:||Regulation; Independence; Accountability||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Barker, M.
