Abstract: It has recently been argued that the discipline imposed by the marketplace should be incorporated into public sector. Many believe that fiscal transparency has positive effects on fiscal performance. However, while those arguments are common, there is not much empirical evidence about transparency and cost efficiency of government. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to estimate the stochastic cost frontier to test the effects of fiscal transparency on the incentive to manage local public services in a cost minimizing way. The result shows that the inefficiencies of local governments relate to internal monitoring. In conclusion we emphasize that the incentive of local government officials is especially effective in promoting the cost minimization of local public services.
