Today, public administration stands at a crossroads.
The immediate problem of American public administrative practice and theory is to integrate or sort out the values, structural, and procedural arrangements associated with the traditional managerial, political, legal, and new public management perspectives.
Public administrative activities range from trash collection to space exploration, from regulation of complex economies to helping economies move beyond subsistence farming, from biomedical technologies to census taking.
The essence of public administration is dealing with relationships among political, economic, social, ethical, organizational, managerial, legal, scientific, and technological values and systems at both the microlevels and macrolevels.
The New Public Management offers one prospect for change.
Another prospect is the reassertion of congressional influence over the administrative process through the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 and the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Act of 1996.
The courts recently have enforced legal rights when functions are outsourced; Added constitutional constraints on administrative action; Weakened affirmative action; Strengthened eminent domain, freedom of expression, contractor’s rights, and barriers to gender discrimination; And strengthened the power of the states.
