Abstract: The purpose of the present study is to discuss and assess the state of performance management within the Brazilian public sector and to suggest the logical framework as a tool to improve resource management in the public sector in Brazil. This is a theoretical study based on literature review. Management performance is undoubtedly, a great challenge in Brazil and in particular for Brazilian public organizations. The implementation of the cycle of performance management in the Brazilian federal public administration has become a legal and administrative necessity. However, these organizations lack the tools or theoretical models of analysis to ensure effectiveness. There is an urgent need for a paradigm shift towards the professionalization of performance management in Brazilian public organizations. The logical framework implies the professionalization of the Brazilian performance evaluation, considering external factors (inefficient public management) and internal (bureaucratic organizational culture). The systems for assessment of effective performance in Brazilian public organizations, in general have not yet materialized in the public sector. As limitations and implications, the study is theoretical andempirical research to test the results is required. The findings can be used to enhance performance management systems with in the Brazilian public sectors and therefore, increase citizen satisfaction. It is believed that, this study will contribute in questioning the performance management in public institutions in general and in the Brazilian one in particular, in which the effectiveness of services rendered is relative to meeting the expectations of citizen-users.
