Morphologie de la RGPP : Une mise en perspective historique et comparative

Abstract : The RGPP Programme Review, a new and original type of State reform policy in the Fifth Republic, is examined here on a comparative basis and viewed within the context of the long sequence of reform initiatives in French administration. The comparison focuses on four different dimensions : the commitments of cross-departmental ministries (budget, interior, civil service), the expertise drawn upon in the reforms, the commitment of political leaders, and the range of reform methods and instruments used. Despite the structural continuity with past policies, the article argues that RGPP programme reviews constitute an unprecedented budgetary reform process, which is inspired by private sector models, influenced by strategy consultancy firms, underpinned by integrated information system consultants, advocated by the Ministry for the Budget, Public Accounts, the Civil Service and State Reform – thus establishing a link between budget savings and the reorganisation process – and spearheaded by a Presidency that emphasises centralisation and political control.
