Abstract (German)

This project focuses on developments of public sector accounting regulations and standards such as trends to performance budgeting or flexibilization and autonomization of administrative units. We analyze the institutional embedding, dynamics of the reform processes as well as the contents of the reforms initiatives in order to identify the specific characteristics of the Austrian development in comparison to other European countries (currently Italy and Northern Ireland).
