Improving accountability in public service provision is one of the most pressing challenges that young democracies face. One of the most difficult challenges is ensuring efficient and effective spending at the local level. Presenting results from a field experiment conducted in Mexico, Dr. de la O shows how central government oversight of local expenditures induces local governments to reallocate spending to programs which are harder to audit.
