EOM Panel Meeting, Sound Public Governance

National Academy of Public Administration
1600 K Street, NW, Suite 400
Washington DC,

Friday, February 15, 2019 at 10:00am - 11:45am

Background: Each of the Academy’s standing panels has been asked to develop one or more compelling issues to contribute to the Academy’s Grand Challenges in Public Administration initiative. Understanding the broader context of how government can work better will be an important foundation for the panel as it develops meaningful issues to be addressed by the Academy.  

This session will examine an ongoing initiative by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to define a framework of elements that constitute “sound public governance.”  This OECD effort has been underway for a number of years and is to culminate in November 2019 with a vote by OECD delegates. Ultimately, the framework will be used by OECD member countries to self-assess their own governance systems.

Our panel has been invited to provide its insights into their draft, but the draft may provide our panel insights on identifying issues for the Grand Challenges, as well.

The discussion will be led by Adam Ostry, Project Leader for Public Governance Reviews, OECD.

Logistics:  We will meet on Friday, February 15th, from 10:00 AM until 11:45 AM . (a light lunch will be available at noon) at NAPA’s offices, 1600 K Street, NW, on the 4th Floor.  Please note the entrance is on 16th St. If you would like to attend via Zoom, please contact Richard Pezzella for a link.
