ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the growth of third-party government and new tools of governance and impact of their increasing use to implement public policy. It focuses on evidence to find out that government control and democratic responsiveness are loosening and that the public sector is evolving. It also shows that the organizational structures and incentives that governments establish in promoting service quality, efficiency, and effectiveness play a vital role in program, even if governments are not engaging directly in service provision.
