Abstract

The recent direction of national attention to the improvement of public sector productivity is evidenced by the interest in issues such as the Graham-Ruddman amendment, and the increasing privatization of public services, both within the United States and abroad. 'Total Productivity Modeling' of a public transit agency provides a quantitative framework, to document productivity gains. This approach provides an equitable method to promote productivity gains among public sector and private sector contractors in a privatization contract of a county transit fleet.
