According to Larbi (2003) the introduction and transfer of a set of management techniques and practices, mostly associated with market and private-for-profit sectors, have been the driving forces to reform administration and management in government, in a variety of countries, notably the UK, New Zealand and Australia. Some of these practices have been applied in transitional and developing economies. These came to be known as the New Public Management. The decades of the 1980s and 1990s witnessed a transition from the Old Public Administration to the New Public Management. Robinson (2015), citing (Dunleavy and Hood, 1994; Denhardt and Denhardt, 2000; Osborne, 2006) argues that from 2000 there was a noticeable movement towards an emerging model variously termed the “new public service”, the “new public governance” or the “post-New Public Management”.
Introduction Public accountability has re-emerged as a top priority for health systems all over the world. Public accountability refers to ‘the spectrum of approaches, mechanisms and practices used by the stakeholders concerned with public services to ensure a desired level and type of performance’ (Paul 1991).

Contemporary concerns, originating in market and corporate failures in the United States and United Kingdom, have extended to Europe, the Pacific Asia, and beyond. The vital significance of corporate governance for accountability and performance is now fully recognized in the industrial world, and perhaps even more acutely in the transitional economies in Eastern Europe, East Asia and Latin

Further the concept of Public Private Partnership leads to the decentralized management culture. The delegation of responsibility with accountability for academic as well as associated management functions is essential for the success of PPP. Thus it can be concluded that the use of Public Private Partnership structures in education projects in India is set to continue and expand in the coming years. There is a stream of project in the pipeline.
Nevertheless, it promotes good governance, serves as an aid to expose corruption, and creates an impact on public policy, which may ultimately hold public officials accountable. Transparency, therefore, is a step that precedes accountability, as the latter requires more action than just by mere knowing. Transparency, in general, is a goal of governments with either LGUs or federal states. In both settings, specific measures are established to ensure that this is achieved. Laws are even enacted by legislative bodies to meet, if not safeguard, this aim.
