EDITORIAL



ABOUT JUSTIN'S DISINGENUITY WITH A FOOTNOTE ABOUT GAËTAN'S

DRIVING THE FAKE OUT OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION : THE CENTRAL ARGUMENT

Ruth Hubbard and Gilles Paquet

The competencies of the executives in the federal public services are poorly defined and appraised, the design of administrative structures is most often a poor fit for the job, the burden of office of top appointees is very poorly approximated by job descriptions, and a culture of entitlement prevails in the federal public service: all this requires a major overhaul of the sort required by King Augeas' stables, but, as the Auditor General's recent report bemoans, nothing is ever done about it.
