Abstract:The Dutch municipalities are in a time of transition due to the occurrence of radical social and financial-financial economic changes, which require adaptation skills of municipalities and their employees in different areas. External and internal developments such as decentralization of tasks, perfoming tasks in partnerships and the shrinking of the internal organization require a lot of the municipalities. Not only new tasks are arising, the municipalities are faced with financial cuts of substantial nature. The municipalities have to do more with less capital and therefore have to organize their internal organizations very efficiently. The financial function fulfills a central and strategic role within public administration in order to overcome these challenges. This requires a different way of working and organizing in order to improve the capabilities of the financial function. It is essential to have a financial function that is future-proof, which is capable of adequately dealing with future challenges. This research investigated how municipality Enschede could redevelop their financial function by reviewing literature and by identifying how and why several comparable municipalities have organized their financial function in a certain manner.
