Debate: Arm’s-Length Bodies and Alternative Models of Service Delivery

 

A new article has been published by Katherine Tonkiss and Amy Noonan in Public Money and Management. This article reflects on the UK coalition government’s ‘alternative models’ agenda, specifically in terms of the adoption of new models of service delivery by arm’s-length bodies (ALBs). It provides an overview of the alternative models agenda and discusses barriers to implementation. These include practical challenges involved in the set up of alternative models, the role of sponsor departments, and the effective communication of best practice. Finally, the article highlights some issues for further discussion.

The article is available here.
