This paper examines the standard-setting process during the recent reform of government accounting standards in Greece. The process is viewed through the
lens of the ‘garbage can’ model, informed by interviews, informal discussions and archival data. Findings indicate a lack of effective monitoring of the process by
politicians and external lenders (the ‘Troika’), and an outcome that favoured the bureaucrats and consultants involved.
