Executive summary of the 2014 review of competition in publicly provided services

Competition in the delivery of publicly provided services is a key driver in ensuring continuous improvements in efficiency, quality and innovation in the public sector. Competition can contribute to increases in the productivity by optimising workflows and equipment through enhanced oversight and management as well as by strengthening the focus on achieving a predefined level of quality and service. The 2014 review of competition in publicly provided services shows that over the course of the past five years there has been a tendency to increases in the share of publicly provided services that are subject to competition. It is also pointed out that there still is a non-exhausted potential for further increases in competition in publicly provided services.
