Section: Paragraph comprehension

In privatization, the government relies on the private sector to provide a service. However, the government divests itself of the entire process, including all assets. With privatized functions, the government may specify quality, quantity, and timeliness requirements, but it has nC. ntrol over the operations of the activity. Also, the government may not be the only customer. Whoever the government chooses to provide the services would likely provide the same services to others. This paragraph best supports the statement that:

The government must closely supervise privatized functions.
Privatized functions consist of a mixture of government employees, military personnel, and private contractors.
Privatized functions are those institutions that provide services only to a government agency.
Privatized functions provide essential services to the government.
