Public sector performance measurement and budget allocation: An Indonesian experiment
This experiment examines how decision makers, such as members of the House of Representatives in Indonesia, use performance measures of public sector organizations in making budget allocation plans. Similar experiments in the private sector have conflicting findings in regard to decision makers' focus on either common or unique measures. Using both types of measures could raise accountability of decision makers such as members of the House especially in public sector organizations (Ndlovu, 2010). Such accountability improvement has not been seen as important in the Indonesia public sector (Sopanah, 2003).
