    Abstract

    Public sector reforms are not a new phenomenon in the developed and developing countries. The reform trajectories, particularly in small island developing countries, have been significantly influenced by the New Public Management (NPM) model (Brinkerhoff and Brinkerhoff 2015). The public sector reforms in the developed and transition economies are driven mainly by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and likewise, public sector reforms in the developing countries are mainly driven by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) (Brinkerhoff and Brinkerhoff 2015). The wave of reforms initiated by the NPM model focuses on the neoliberal ideologies of aligning the public sector with the operations of the private sector (Van de Walle and Hammerschmid 2011). The intricacies of the management debate on the success and failure of public sector reforms have been closely scrutinized by academics, practitioners, and policy makers (Van deWalle and Hammerschmid 2011).
