dc.description.abstractIn this paper we investigate how a major reform in the civil service changed accountability relationships. We seek to explain these changes using a transformative approach that combines structural, cultural and environmental perspectives taken from organization theory. The reform in question is the major reform of the welfare administration that Norway passed in 2005 and implemented through 2009. The reform merged the national pension administration and the employment agency and established local partnerships with the municipality-based social services. We map formal accountability relations to see whether they were changed by the reform and how they work in practice. More specifically we address the following accountability relations: Political, managerial, legal, professional and social accountabilityen
dc.description.abstractI dette notatet undersøker vi hvordan Nav-reformen har endret ansvarsrelasjoner. For å forklare endringene benyttees et organisasjonsteoretisk transformativt perspektiv som kombinerer strukturelle, kulturelle og omgivelsesrelaterte faktorer. Vi kartlegger i hvilken grad formelle ansvarsrelasjoner er blitt endret som følge av reformen og hvordan de fungerer i praksis. Følgende ansvarsrelasjoner undersøkes mer spesifikt: Politisk ansvar, administrativt ansver, profesjonelt ansvar, legalt ansvar og samfunnsmessig ansvar. Nav-reformen har endret formelle ansvarsrelasjoner og ikke minst hvordan de utøves i praksis. Disse endringen kan føres tilbake til en kombinasjon av strukturelle, kulturelle og omgivelsesrelaterteforhold.en
