Kommunales Beteiligungsmanagement und -controlling
[Management and Financial Controlling of Municipal Companies]
Series:De Gruyter Studium
Aims and Scope
In line with the New Management Model (NSM), cities and municipalities across Germany have outsourced many services to companies in which they hold an investment stake. As a result, a significant share of essential public services, including in particular utility services, are provided by quasi-public corporations. Efficiency has become increasingly important at such companies, in light of the tight financial situation faced by local governments.
