Right to make mistakes, culture pass, state start-up … one year of CAP 22

One year after CAP 22, where are we? In a note dated 24 July, that The world the state-run inter-ministerial delegate, Thomas Cazenave, provides an update on the state's reform. Three quarters of the proposals of the public action committee (CAP 22), which worked on the subject between October 2017 and June 2018 at the request of the Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, "Have been gone"assures Mr. Cazenave.

According to this note, four measures, "To profoundly transform the inner workings of the state", have been launched. It was a question of giving more autonomy to public managers and of establishing a relationship of trust with the citizens. It is within this framework that the "right to the error" law of August 2018 is inscribed, the launch of satisfaction surveys on the quality of the public services or the reform central administrations, adopted in June.

Mr. Cazenave then insists on the development of digital technology: new tools have been created (such as "state start-ups"), 67% of the most important ones. Administrative marches have been dismantled and online services are developing (school year, medical orders, culture pass …).

A reflection on the presence of public services in the territories, and in particular in the countryside, has also been launched. The idea is to bring public services closer to users, for example by bus tours of multipurpose agents. Last project:  € œbuild a new social contractâ € with the officials. That is the challenge of the Civil Service Act, passed in July by Parliament, to the dismay of the unions. They see it AT" a bad blow to the public service  », considering that the text "Bypasses the status", "Will reduce the capacity of labor organizations to collectively defend agents' rights" and  € œwill encourage and accentuate the precariousnessâ €.

Financial commitment

In his note, Mr Cazenave states that "Eighteen sectoral reforms" have been engaged. One of them, inspired by CAP 22, concerns national education, with the aim of "Put France in the top ten world education systems" : doubling of the number of CP and CE1 classes in priority education, instruction at the age of 3, reform of the apprenticeship.

But the note quotes other examples: "Facilitating access to justice through increased use of digital tools", "To unburden the hospital", especially by unloading doctors from certain tasks, Â € œImprove the life expectancy in good healthâ € or "Simplify and reduce the cost of the recovery of compulsory levies".

In other sectors, the proposals have only been partially repeated, as has "Gradually reduce the circulation of species towards complete extinction", from "Address the distortions of personalized housing assistance by type of income" or "Eliminate duplication between the state and local communities".

Finally, Mr Cazenave gave an update on the financial commitment. Of the 700 million euros pledged over the five-year period, the Public Policy Transformation Fund has already financed 31 projects for a total amount of 190 million euros. According to him, this should help to free  «442 million euros in cumulative savings for the state from 2019 to 2022 and 246 millions each year beyond».
