The project will look into the current issues of accounting technology in the Estonian public sector ( could be in a number of sectors like, health, transport or education) and examine what changes are taking place and what the consequences of these accounting changes are and what impact these are having on the users and prepares of the accounting systems. This will also involve examining general government perspectives on political economy and how these objectives are being implemented into government policies as well as individual ministries.
