Summarizes the proceedings of a 2002 conference, co-sponsored by the U.S. General Accounting Office, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, and the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies, which examined the implications of new of tools of public action for government performance in the United States. The conference was designed to acquaint both policy scholars and practitioners with these alternative tools, and with the “tools approach” that focuses attention on them, and to establish an agenda for future action that might improve the operation of public programs by sensitizing policy makers and policy administrators to the distinctive features and operating demands of the various tools that public programs embody.
