3 – translation by the authors from ‘In beide landen wordt agentschapvorming geacht te leiden tot een meer prestatiegerichte sturing door het ministerie, bedrijfsmatiger functioneren van de uitvoeringsorganisatie en een groetere oriëntatie op de gebruikers (klanten)’) Many of these bodies [agencies and other ‘distributed’ entities] have a quasi- or fully contractual relationship with their line ministry/ minister.
