This study explored the latitude with which basic services are delivered by agents and whether they operate autonomously or are steered by the accountability mechanisms; and the efficiency of the mode of delivery for basic primary education, water supply and feeder roads in Sierra Leone. The study was conducted in 8 out of the 14 districts of the country, and analysed four areas: governance actors in basic service delivery; accountability mechanisms; sectoral differences in the governance of basic services; and regional differences in the delivery of these services.
