Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)

The OECD currently has 56 members (industrial countries) and plays a pivotal role in the field of „“good governance". The organisation supports governments in meeting economic, social and environmental policy challenges in a globalised economy. Its headquarter is in Paris.

The Public Governance Committee (PGC) OECD is the control body for the area of administration modernisation in which representatives from the OECD member states meet up twice a year. Its task is the strategic alignment of administrative reforms and the evaluation of modernisation measures. There is also the so-called OECD Network on E-Government, in which members can exchange information on current eGovernment activities.

In 2009, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) published an international study "Government at a Glance” for the first time. It contains comprehensive information about the way the public administrations of all OECD member states work. Other publications can be found in the virtual OECD library.
