Abstract [en]

Here we study how the choice of top management model is related to ex post control of state agencies in the context of Swedish governments and state agencies 2003 to 2016. The empirical question in focus is whether agency top management models are systematically related to governments’ request for performance measurements from agencies. This relationship is studied for 184 Swedish state agencies across time, in a population that contains four different management models (N=1696). Our data enables comparisons between single head management models; collegial/professional organs, and collective/pluralistic management models respectively in this regard. Controlling for budget size, and taking agency task; policy area, and point in time into account, we find that agency top management models have independent effects on the number of performance information requests made by governments.
