Project description

This study examines to what extent efficiency audit is implemented by Supreme Audit Institutions influenced by New Public Management. A second research question deals with the explanation of the differing level of implementation using an institutional theory perspective. Examined institutional factors are mainly the legitimay, the normative background and coexercive effects.
