The relevance of entrepreneurship in the puhlic sector is considered. In investigating relationships a review of the literature is undertaken and a model is proposed to examine the effects of certain environmental variahles and centralisation on entrepreneurship and ultimately, performance. The proposed model is based on work conducted hy Covin and Slevin (1991), reconsidered within a puhlic sector context. Research is conducted among Australian puhlic sector entities. A structural equation model is used to examine the hypothesised linkages. Implications of the findings are discussed, limitations are noted and directions for future research are outlined.
