Abstract

This is a response to Robert Gregory 's discussion of the author's article 'Towards a New Public Management Model', AJPA 52(2). It argues that Gregory has misunderstood the rationale of the author's 'public production process' model. He misrepresents the model as simplistic and as understating the complexities of politics in public administration. As a result, the potential promise of Gregory's alternative conception is inadequately realised.
