Chapter Summary

This chapter explores how reforms affect public administrative action on the ground and how officials negotiate interdepartmental tensions. It focuses on the Cameroonian tax administration, whose face began to change markedly in the 1990s. The chapter examines the effects of a recent program aimed at improving the efficiency of the state's revenue-raising efforts. It analyzes in detail the Program for Improved Revenue Reliability in the Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Sector (PSREP), one such relatively modest component of these reforms, and to place the scope of this program within a broader spectrum of administrative practice. Recent studies have demonstrated how a transnational epistemic community of tax experts has played a major part in the design of strategies to improve tax administration in developing countries. The chapter discusses the contour of the administrative reforms in Cameroon before delving, through a specific example, into the nature of the transformations that they have triggered.

Keywords: administrative reforms; Cameroonian tax administration; PSREP; transnational epistemic community
