Accountability and the Controversial Role of the Performance Contractors. A Critical Look at the Performance Contracting Phenomenon.
Sigel, Efrem; Sobel, Myra
This report explores the evolutionary process of the concepts of accountability and performance contracting from their inception through mid 1970-71. Six major topics are discussed: (1) ideological, managerial, and pedagogical underpinnings, (2) definitions and history of the concepts, (3) five performance contracting projects, (4) the political implications of accountability, (5) the performance contracting industry, and (6) pitfalls and promises of the concepts. Appendixes provide descriptions of various contracts and current profiles of contracting corporations. (JF)
