  • Public performance reports should support a robust data analytics capability. A good performance report should include not only an explanation of data trends, but also provide analysis of causes and explore possible solutions to problematic trends.
And from my point of view, that I believe by enhancing government performance it will improve the lives of citizen in many aspects. Let's say that a clear government performance, I mean a system with less of corruption will bring the lives of citizen towards prosperous because with government performance enhanced in this point will increase the development of the country to provide a good facility and infrastructure. As we can see, corruption from government will be surely slowing down the growth of the country.

I have to say that your comments are reasonable to understand, the following statements could be seen.

1. A system with less of corruption will bring the lives of citizen towards prosperous because with government performance enhanced in this point will increase the development of the country to provide a good facility and infrastructure. 

Comments: 
It's true, but having some difficulty in executing to be very honest in dealing with public affairs.

2. Does it really improve the lives of citizens by enhancing government performance?

I have some viewpoints which could be explained as follows.
The institutional arrangements that have been reviewed in the literature summarised here include: 
i) practices ensuring increased results orientation, such as budget practices and procedures and performance measurement arrangements; 
ii) arrangements that increase flexibility, including devolution of functional and fiscal responsibilities from central to sub-national governments, agencification, intra-governmental coordination, human resource management arrangements and e-government; 
iii) methods for strengthening competitive pressures through privatisation and other means; and 
iv) various workforce issues, including workforce size, its composition, the extent and nature of unionisation and the attractiveness of the public sector. 

Overall, the evidence is surprisingly scant. Available research is inconclusive with respect to the impact on efficiency of varying circumstances.
