servants, discusses key elements of activity management, also its positive and negative aspects. The authors

and main linkages with key principles of activity management model. The results of the analysis show that
in current Lithuanian situation the application of in-service activity evaluation model, which is most typical

model. Possible ways to solve some problems, which arise in the process of evaluation, are provided
