New bulletin focuses on the future of competition in public sector markets

The Brexit challenge has inevitably diverted attention from other issues confronting policy-makers, while at the same time making it all the more necessary that we get wider public policy right.

Frontier today published the first bulletin in a series of “Future Thinking” updates about how to meet ever higher expectations from public services. The series aims to discuss emerging trends and to help inform corporate and government decisions in areas such as health and social care, education and skills, productivity growth, trade, and migration.

The first bulletin, “Getting choosy – The future of competition in public sector markets”, cuts across almost all policy areas: how thinking has evolved on the use of choice and competition in public services. We outline a framework which could work as a useful discipline to help governments make the right decisions by identifying the circumstances in which competition will deliver better quality and value for money, and those in which it will not.
