The articles in this edition of the Journal of Public Administration are based on some papers presented at the 11th Annual Conference of the South African Association of Public Administration and Management (SAAPAM), which took place on 16-18 February 2011 in Pretoria. The theme of the Conference was Fostering Excellence, Innovation and Monitoring of Public Administration in a Developmental State. The said papers were selected on the basis of their theoretical and empirical rigour, originality in seeking to make scholarly contribution to the discourse in the field of Public Administration and Management, and also, more importantly, their relevance in informing policy on various aspects formulated to contextualise the theme of the conference, which, among others, included the question of contextualising a developmental state; governance and policy; network governance, innovation, monitoring and evaluation in public administration; leadership and human resource management; financial management; ethics and good governance; intergovernmental relations; and service delivery.
