Covid Performance - Lowy Institute. More analysis Coronavirus continues to spread worldwide with more than 90 million confirmed cases across 190 countries and two million deaths as of mid-January 2021.
For nearly a year, governments and societies have been turned inwards to fight an invisible enemy, exposing competing structures, vulnerabilities, and political priorities. The pandemic has also given rise to an ‘infodemic’ of narratives and counter-narratives about what kinds of states are inherently better suited to combatting the virus. This Interactive explores how almost 100 countries with publicly available and comparable data on the virus have managed the pandemic in the 36 weeks following their hundredth confirmed case of COVID-19, using data available to 9 January 2021.
Countries have been sorted into broad categories — by regions, political systems, population size, and economic development — to determine whether significant variations exist between different types of states in the handling of the pandemic. Measures and Methodology for International Comparisons of Health Care System Performance: Final Report. The Immediate Office of the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking to identify measures that could improve the ability of the United States and other countries to learn from international comparisons of health system performance.

Alexandru - U.S. GAO - Taxpayer Service: IRS Could Improve the Taxpayer Experience by Using Better Service Performance Measures. What GAO Found The Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) mission and strategic plan state expectations for IRS to improve the taxpayer experience and services it provides.
However, IRS and its divisions that manage programs serving the largest taxpayer groups—the Wage and Investment (W&I) and the Small Business/Self-Employed (SB/SE) divisions—did not have performance goals to specify the desired improvements. For example, W&I aligned its service programs to IRS's strategic objectives for taxpayer services that state broad types of management activities such as monitoring the taxpayer experience and addressing issues. However, it did not have performance goals that specify outcomes to improve the taxpayer experience, such as reducing taxpayer wait times for telephone assistance. Because IRS and these two divisions do not have performance goals for improving the taxpayer experience, IRS does not have related performance measures.
Olivier - Creating the government of the future. Learn how governments can use the building blocks of change to design a more anticipatory, prepared, and resilient future.
An inflection point This IS a big moment in the evolution of government. The year 2020 will be remembered for many things—the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic downturn, social and political unrest, and a contentious US presidential election, to name a few. But the future may also look back at 2020 as a year when governments at all levels reached an inflection point—when driving forces remaking our world prompted long-awaited changes to the way government serves its citizens. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated—in some cases, by years—the advance of the future of government. But COVID-19 isn’t the only force driving change in government. This study examines the forces of change driving government transformation, the tools of that transformation, and future scenarios of what is possible.

Mélodie - U.S. GAO - COVID-19: Federal Efforts Accelerate Vaccine and Therapeutic Development, but More Transparency Needed on Emergency Use Authorizations. What GAO Found Through Operation Warp Speed—a partnership between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Defense (DOD)—the federal government is accelerating efforts to develop vaccines and therapeutics for COVID-19.
A typical vaccine development process can take approximately 10 years or longer, but efforts under Operation Warp Speed seek to greatly accelerate this process by completing key steps simultaneously (see figure). As of October 15, 2020, Operation Warp Speed publicly announced financial support for the development or manufacturing of six COVID-19 vaccine candidates totaling more than $10 billion in obligations. It has also announced financial support for the development of therapeutics, such as a $450 million award to manufacture a monoclonal antibody treatment (a treatment that uses laboratory-made antibodies, which also may be able to serve as a prevention option).
Operation Warp Speed Timeline for a Potential Vaccine Candidate. Mélodie - How behavioural insights helped Canadians access their tax benefits. Every year, thousands of lower income Canadian families miss out on about $5,000 in benefits and refunds because they do not file their taxes.
It is easy to understand why. Tax filing can be burdensome and complex. It is voluntary if you do not owe any money, and the benefits of filing are sometimes unclear. Community-based organizations like the Oak Park Neighbourhood Centre (OPNC) in Oakville, Ontario have stepped in to help. OPNC runs free, year-round tax filing clinics where residents can get help from a certified tax filer. Mélodie - Huge government debts mean Canada is robbing its kids. Before the pandemic, the combined federal and provincial Canadian debt totalled $1.4 trillion.
And since then, this debt has rapidly grown, with governments borrowing another $300 billion in the current year alone. This debt will be mostly repaid by our children, their children and their children’s children. This raises a moral matter of how we are treating our young and future Canadians. Is it ethical for governments to increase spending by placing greater debts on future generations?
Isn’t contractually placing our children into a monetary form of debt bondage morally indefensible? Embracing Innovation in Government Global Trends 2020. Governments have more potential – and more need – than ever before to provide incredible and innovative services for their people and businesses.
By understanding what has been tried and learned already, and by following the recommendations in this report, governments can smooth out existing frictions in government processes and services, in internal and public-facing transactions, and in building resilient foundations for future challenges. 709952. Revitaliser l’économie manufacturière du Canada en vue du monde de l’après-COVID - Forum des politiques publiques. Introduction : le déclin du secteur manufacturier du Canada La pandémie de la COVID-19 a révélé la fragilité des arrangements économiques internationaux sur lesquels nous nous appuyons en temps de crise.
À son paroxysme, cette fragilité a pris la forme d’une pénurie de matériel médical et d’équipement de protection personnelle dans de nombreux pays, dont le Canada. Des années de délocalisation, d’impartition et de production de dernière minute nous ont laissés mal équipés face à la pandémie. Mélodie Health data collected during the coronavirus pandemic needs to be managed responsibly.
The novel coronavirus has generated unprecedented urgency to learn from health data.
There is a variety of data that are crucial to the pandemic response, but not all of these data are collected or governed by the same organization. For example, COVID-19 test results aren’t necessarily kept in the same database as data about medical conditions, medications or social determinants of health.

Arnoud Boot, Elena Carletti, Hans‐Helmut Kotz, Jan Pieter Krahnen, Loriana Pelizzon, Marti Subrahmanyam 03 April 2020 This column builds on our earlier work on the coronavirus and financial stability and adds to the current debate about effective policy responses to mitigate the COVID-19 economic crisis (e.g.
Bénassy-Quéré et al. 2020, Brunnermeier et al. 2020, Giavazzi and Tabellini 2020). In our earlier note (Boot et al. 2020), we discussed the potential consequences of the current broad-based interruption of economic activity in a number of countries around the world. Imminent liquidity problems and the ensuing solvency concerns need to be addressed swiftly and through vigorous government programmes, as is already happening in most countries. While warranted as an immediate response, we emphasised the problematic longer-term consequences of some of these measures, in particular due to their uncoordinated, national scope, particularly in the European context. 1. 2. 3. 4.
Our approach. Mélodie -Repair and reconstruct: A Recovery Initiative. Agnès Bénassy-Quéré, Ramon Marimon, Philippe Martin, Jean Pisani-Ferry, Lucrezia Reichlin, Dirk Schoenmaker, Beatrice Weder di Mauro 20 April 2020 The EU has been slow to formulate its response to the Covid crisis. Fortunately, things have started to change. The EU’s leaders should finish work on the new borrowing facilities, first by clarifying the maturities of the borrowings, and second by being prepared to beef up their amounts if needed.
It is also crucial to find ways to jointly finance priority action and to provide support to countries worst affected by the crisis in order to restart their own economies. The objective of a Recovery Initiative should be to repair and reconstruct the EU economy: to repair corporate balance sheets and value chains; and to reconstruct the economy on a new, sustainable basis through investment in common public goods such as research, resilience, and the greening of the economy. The EU has been slow to formulate its response to the Covid crisis. Mélodie - Europe in the time of Covid-19: A new crash test and a new opportunity. The recovery from the Covid crisis and related lockdowns is likely to be slow due to depressed consumption and investment, and it will require fast reallocations in both the labour market and the capital market.
The shock being both exogenous and dramatic, one could have expected European politicians to temporary forget their disagreements. However, even under such obvious circumstances, European coordination has proved as painful as ever and many of old fault lines in the euro architecture debate have reopened.

Conclusion DFAT’s implementation of the KIAT and PAGP facility arrangements are partially effective in supporting value for money in the delivery of aid. AG - Quelles relations entre savoirs pouvoir et opinions. AG - U.S. GAO - Priority Open Recommendations: Department of Justice. What GAO Found In April 2019, GAO identified 14 priority recommendations for the Department of Justice (DOJ).
Since then, DOJ has implemented 7 of those recommendations by, among other things, improving the information it provides on Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) whistleblower complaints, ensuring the privacy and accuracy of FBI face recognition capabilities, and more efficiently using information in the National Crime Information Center’s Missing Persons and Unidentified Persons files and National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. In April 2020, GAO identified 11 additional priority recommendations for DOJ, bringing the total number to 18.
These recommendations involve the following areas: improving efforts to combat illicit opioid use. addressing cyber security risk management. assessing the susceptibility of DOJ’s Law Enforcement program to improper payments. DOJ’s continued attention to these issues could lead to significant improvements in government operations.

The Best Government Conferences of 2020. World Public Sector Report2019. Innovation en gouvernance financière (MB)
De Mélanie J'aimais le résumé : La crise financière mondiale a mis les budgets publics de toute l'Union européenne sous forte pression. Les réponses du gouvernement à la crise financière se sont principalement concentrées sur les coupes budgétaires pour équilibrer le budget. Dans cet article, nous nous concentrons sur un cas spécifique d'innovation dans la gouvernance financière en Italie qui visait à minimiser les effets graves des contraintes financières sur le gouvernement local, tout en gérant les objectifs de contrôle du déficit au niveau central. L'innovation réglementaire a consisté en un système d'accords entre les niveaux de gouvernement basé sur la capacité d'échanger des permis de déficit budgétaire. Bien que ce système garde le déficit global à l'échelle du gouvernement inchangé, il permet aux gouvernements locaux individuels de s'écarter de leurs objectifs d'équilibre budgétaire initial en obtenant des permis de déficit auprès des gouvernements qui ont un excédent. Cet article analyse de manière critique cette innovation sous trois angles: le modèle de gouvernance inhérent à ce mécanisme, les nouvelles pratiques de gestion financière émergentes au niveau local et l'efficacité du mécanisme au regard des buts et objectifs déclarés. Les résultats de cette étude montrent qu'un élément critique limitant l'innovation dans la gouvernance budgétaire semble être lié à l'observation simpliste selon laquelle la position budgétaire globale du gouvernement du pays résulte de la somme algébrique des résultats financiers de tous les organismes publics. Au cœur de cette compréhension se trouvent les effets collatéraux qui se produisent lorsque les priorités locales sont faussées par la nécessité d'atteindre des objectifs budgétaires individuels fixés de manière descendante par le gouvernement central, – observgo
Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour - La performance au service des politiques publiques ? 2020 La gestion des innovations territoriales à l’aune des impératifs de performance publique. Statement on ANAO performance audit: Tax Avoidance Taskforce – Meeting Budget Commitments. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) welcomes the release of the Australian National Audit Office’s (ANAO) performance audit: Tax Avoidance Taskforce – Meeting Budget Commitments, which has found that there has been a significant increase in compliance revenue since the commencement of the taskforce.
While there are some conclusions in the report the ATO feels require additional context in relation to the specific issues raised, the overall finding is that the determination, commitment and passion of the ATO’s workforce has been successful to address corporate tax avoidance. The audit focused on whether the Taskforce has been resourced in accordance with Budget estimates.
