Working Paper No 1, authors Jo Cribb and Tom Berthold, July 1999. This paper explores issues relating to the co-ordination of central government and local government in addressing joint problems.
To be successful in addressing joint problems it is necessary to have a clear, accurate and shared understanding of the relative status and respective roles of each sector. This paper seeks to establish a framework on which such an understanding might be based. State Services Commission, February 2000, ISBN 0-4788-08975-9, Crown copyright.
