Keywords: performance, civil servant, development, management, public administration, rural area, evaluation, impact.
The main goal of this research is to identify the possibilities of improving the performance of the first level LPA management in order to transfer it to the development of rural areas in the Republic of Moldova.
1. To elucidate the implications of new public management models on administrative reconfiguration.
2. To investigate the existing theoretical and methodological foundations regarding the possibilities of assessing the performance of LPA management in terms of its contribution to rural development.
3. To assess the socio-economic viability of the countryside with a view to identifying priority directions for its development through the involvement of LPA management.
4. Identify levers to improve LPA management by removing intermediate barriers that prevent the transfer of performance towards rural development.
5. Determine the impact of LPA management performance on rural development imperatives using the feedback method.
6. To develop a mechanism for improving LPA management performance in the perspective of rural development.
The novelty and scientific originality of the work lies in the following: establishing the controversies in the conceptual approaches of public administration as catalysts of changes aimed at reconfiguring the administrative system through new models of public management; identifying criteria aimed at determining the impact of the transfer of performance of LPA management on the development of rural areas in the Republic of Moldova; establishing the priority directions of development of rural areas through the diagnosis of the level of development, its characteristics and its affinity with the performance of LPA management; Suggesting levers for improving LPA management performance by elucidating and analyzing the intimidating barriers that prevent the transfer of performance towards rural development; developing an evaluation sheet on the impact of LPA management performance on rural development, aimed at identifying internal reserves for improving performance; suggesting a mechanism for improving LPA management performance with a view to rural development in the Republic of Moldova.
The important scientific problem solved reside in the developing of a method for assessing the performance of LPA management and designing a mechanism designed to help improve this performance, which will contribute to the efficiency of its activities as a factor stimulating economic growth, with a view to applying managerial strategies in the sustainable development of the rural sector.
The theoretical significance consists in identifying methods and mechanisms aimed at contributing to the enhancement of LPA management performance in order to transfer this performance to the development of rural areas in the Republic of Moldova.
The applicative value of the research derives from the author's proposed sheet for assessing the impact of LPA management performance on rural development imperatives, as well as from the sustainable development factors identified based on the rural viability study. The paper assesses the impact of public administration management performance in order to identify the barriers to the transfer of performance on rural development, which allows the identification of a mechanism for its improvement by identifying certain concrete levers.
Implementation of scientific results: The results of scientific research have been disseminated both at national and international conferences and in articles published in specialist journals. Suggested recommendations and mechanisms to improve the performance of LPA management were used by three municipalities in rural areas of the Republic of Moldova.
