Over the last two decades, a change can be seen in the received doctrines of public accountability and administration. An initiative aimed at increasing the quality of public governance has been implemented and is generally referred to as the New Public Management (NPM). NPM is a response to the assumption that politicians are inherently venal and likely to abuse their authority to enrich themselves and their friends leading to inefficiency and ineffectiveness. One of the doctrines for ensuring public interest via NPM is the use of an elaborate structure of procedural rules designed to guarantee integrity, transparency and professional service to the public. In the PhD study, Improvement of the Public Project Lifecycle, the Icelandic management framework is analyzed and compared against best practises in project management and how other nations manage the relationship between the state and the citizens in the context of the scope described above. The lecture states the thesis outline, current findings and status.
