Welfare state was in crisis in 1970s. To reduce public finance burden on welfare state, the New Right advocated marketization of social services, and replaced government provision with service purchase. The process of purchasing services is managed in accordance with the doctrines of managerialism, such as value for money, accountability and customer-orientation. This managerial reform has brought about fundamental changes in social services in western welfare states. How-ever, the application of managerialism in social services is a long-term controversial issue. Inspired by the ideas of managerialism, Hong Kong government initiated its social services subvention policy reform in 1990s. As a result, a 'Lump Sum Grant Subvention System', (LSGSS) was established at the turn of the century. The study examines how the LSGSS changes the financial resources and political power of subvented NGOs. Based on the experience of Hong Kong, the paper also tries to provide some implications for social services development in mainland China.
