Ausgestaltung der Aufsichtsratstätigkeit in öffentlichen by Simon Lutter

By Simon Lutter

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich service provider und Verwaltung, word: 1,3, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität - Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg (Professur für Verwaltungswissenschaft, insb. Steuerung öffentlicher Organisationen), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Das Risiko eines Konkurses ist bei öffentlichen Unternehmen – im Gegensatz zu privat geführten – praktisch nicht vorhanden, da diese bei einer Schieflage in der Regel durch staatliches Eingreifen saniert werden. Dies geschieht häufig mit Steuergeldern oder Staatsbürgschaften. Gerade das Einbringen steuerfinanzierter Mittel bedingt ein hohes Maß an Transparenz bei öffentlichen Unternehmungen zur Sicherung der effizienten Mittelverwendung.
Vor diesem Hintergrund stellt sich die Frage, wie die verschiedenen Ausgliederungen geführt und kontrolliert werden. Dabei hängt die Ausgestaltung der Steuerungs- und Überwachungsinstrumente maßgeblich von der Wahl der Rechtsform ab. Aus diesem Grund fokussiert sich die dieser Arbeit zugrundeliegende empirische examine auf die oben erwähnten Rechtsformen einer AG und einer GmbH.
Ausgangspunkt für eine Public company Governance ist die Tatsache, dass der Staat die öffentlichen Leistungen nicht selbst erbringt, sondern sie durch Dritte erbringen lässt. In den einschlägigen deutschsprachigen wissenschaftlichen Zeitschriften (u.a. Public administration assessment, Die Betriebswirtschaft, Der Aufsichtsrat, ZfbF) wurden zu diesem Thema nur wenige Diskussionsbeiträge mit Bezug zu den Ländern Österreich und Schweiz gefunden.
Angesichts dieses Forschungsdefizits hat die vorliegende Arbeit das Ziel, zunächst die gesetzlichen Grundlagen der Aufstellung und Offenlegung von Jahresabschlüssen, der Ausweisung der Vergütung und der company Governance Berichterstattung in Österreich und der Schweiz zu erörtern. Anschließend wird auf dieser Grundlage eine empirische examine von Geschäftsberichten und Jahresabschlüssen öffentlicher Unternehmen von ausgewählten Städten und des Bundes der oben genannten Länder durchgeführt. Dabei soll eine Umsetzung der gesetzlichen Vorgaben von den Entscheidungsträgern öffentlicher Unternehmen in der Praxis ermittelt werden.
Eine Zusammenfassung der gesetzlichen Grundlagen für die Länder Österreich und Schweiz erfolgt in Kapitel three. Das Kapitel four beinhaltet die Erläuterungen zur Methodik der empirischen examine sowie die Erörterung der zentralen Erkenntnisse. Aufbauend darauf werden in Kapitel five Reformvorschläge im Kontext zur Forschungsfrage erörtert.
