This Program explains the role of public administration in government and public office, and its role in the implementation of government policy and translating political decisions into the “reality” which citizens see every day. It covers the organisation of government departments and agencies, the management of programmes designed to implement policy, and the behavior and responsibilities of ‘civil servants’ and officials who are responsible for those policies and programmes.
It considers government decision making, how and why policies are developed, and analysis of them.
It describes the duties of heads of city, county, regional, state and federal departments, such as municipal budget directors, HR administrators, city managers, census managers, state mental health directors, and cabinet secretaries.
