Abstract

The subtitle of Steven Cohen and William Eimicke’s book indicates the significance of their work. The public interest needs protecting, and contract managers, perhaps more than any other group of bureaucrats, bear what the authors see as a unique burden of public administration, that is, reconciling the values of democratic representation and accountability with the reality of outsourced government.
