Abstract Besides the traditional forms of liberalization of public services and authority, public administration reforms also involve the privatization of (state) administrative tasks. In some countries, including Slovenia, private holders perform public tasks in such a way based on “public authority”. The main reason for granting public authority is increased efficiency of administrative tasks, which private entities achieve through liberalization of political influence and rationalization of work. However, due protection of public interest has to be maintained by strategic control of public authority. The article addresses by theoretical analysis aspects of administrative tasks’ privatization based and analyzed on the example of multiple OECD and the EU countries, especially Slovenia, in the context of good governance concept in order to offer guidelines for similar reforms in other countries.
