The OECD Directorate for Public Governance and Territorial Development (GOV) deals with public sector tasks in the fields of budget policy, public employment as well as general regulatory policy. The aim is to initiate a joint learning process through comparisons and reviews from different member states. To this end, data for international comparisons are collated, specific analyses effected, international standards laid down and comparative studies on member states carried out.
The work of GOV is discussed with the member states in two committees:
Public Governance Committee (PGC):
Budget policy and management
Public employment and human resources management
Ethics and integrity in the public sector (fight against corruption)
Open governance responsive to citizens
Regulatory Policy Committee (RPC):
Regulatory impact assessment
International regulatory cooperation
The EU-financed SIGMA programme (Support for Improvement for Governance and Management) as well as the OECD MENA Initiative are special projects of the GOV Directorate. These projects serve to advise governments and public administrations in the new EU member states and in the Western Balkans (SIGMA) as well as in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
