The paper "Non-Government Sector in Australia" is a great example of a report on management. The Australian government has a history of providing services to the public through other sectors. Like the majority of developed countries, this aspect of devolved government has significantly gained complexity, scale, and scope. This paper discusses the challenges that come along during the implementation of the devolved government. The areas that are a challenge to the government during implementation are the support of non-government providers, providing policy delivery which is effective, the protection of citizen trust and satisfaction, building capability of public service, management performance which is effective and accountable.

The devolved government does involve the usage of the nonprofit making organization and the private sectors by the public sector for the delivery of public services and goods. The devolved government does occur via a range of financial support and contractual mechanisms that are used to accomplish public ends like grants and contracts; loan guarantees and loans, voucher systems and subsidies; measures of taxation; private organizations that are established publicly; and ventures of private/public partnership. The essay primarily focuses on the challenges of devolved government involving the funding of the government of non-government organizations (NGOs) for the delivery of public services. Policy implementation through devolved government The growth in devolved government has led to wider diversification of public sector modes of delivery.

It has not been clear what constitutes the public sector. This has led to a more and more difficult situation for the public sector. Policy issues are at the center of agendas where the government frequently goes beyond boundaries of traditional organizations which requires integrated feedbacks that are inter-jurisdictional and inter-agency (e. g.

indigenous affairs, homelessness, and climate change). These issues do call for a change of behavior and the lively engagement of communities and individuals. During the same duration expectations of the citizens are seamless and growth of customized delivery of services. The implications of this advancement to public administration from the traditional approach are significant.
