As such it has become necessary for restructuring of the sector by privatization, and contracting to counteract the financial deficit.

The bureaucratic and traditional administration of the public sector has been unresponsive to the needs of the consumers and hence the need of such reforms. Indeed NPSM has been found have a genesis from the 1970s and 1980s when Reganomics and Thatcherism were prominent with insistence on market competition and privatization of the public organizations (Benedict 2000, p.32).
