Abstract: The aim of the present paper is to explore the effect that the de-agentification process implemented by the Spanish government has had on public expenditure since 2010. Specifically, we analyse the effect of the actions carried out on the number of public agencies. Our sample is composed of a set of data from 17 Spanish Regional Governments in the period 2003-2017. Based on panel data estimations, the findings show a significantly positive association between the number of public agencies and public expenditure. Therefore, these findings extend the debate about the potential benefits for government concerning the creation of public agencies.
