This chapter first provides a general overview of the structure of government and the roles of different kinds of government agencies in Tanzania. The account is placed in a wider context, in particular the impact of the transition from a socialist model of economic development to a neo-liberal model following an economic crisis in the 1980s. A raft of economic and public-sector reforms were implemented under the guidance of international donors, including privatization and civil service downsizing and the introduction of the UK executive-agency model. The bulk of the chapter is concerned with describing some of the results of this most recent form of agencification in Tanzania.
