The results highlight: (i) The selection of a Bibliographic Portfolio composed of 29 articles; (ii) The most prominent journals are “Public Performance & Management Review” and “Public Administration Review”; (iii) Among the papers, 63% use performance measurement systems and 37% performance management systems; and, (iv) The majority (55%) is in an evolutionary stage of "transition from operations to the strategic orientations".
