Abstract

As a form of collaborative governance, government procurement of public services from non-governmental organisations (NGOs) has become a major channel for public service delivery. Different from the relative mature practices of public service procurement in Western countries, China is attempting to adopt this mechanism in recent years, calling for more research in sense making the issues and challenges in the procurement process. This paper discusses six major issues in Chinese Government procurement of public services from the perspective of collaborative governance theory, analyses the reasons that lead to these six challenges, and proposes some important solutions to these issues.
