|French term or phrase: ordre administratif|
|This is a list of reforms aimed at improving the business climate in Benin. The last one reads:|
Réforme des corps de contrôle de l'ordre administratif
Bit unsure as to meaning in this context. Any ideas?
|English translation:Reforming the [bodies in charge of] control over the public administration|
here "l'ordre administratif" is meant in a wider meaning of "l'administration" i.e. bodies exercising a "public function", that are "public authorities"
"corps de contrôle" are all sort of "controlling / supervisory / monitoring" bodies in charge of insuring that "the administration" is functioning as it should.
An example that would be very relevant here would be a "corps de contrôle" (of any possible name, some sort of "Supervisory Authority" , NOT a court) in charge of verifying that "public authorities" are conducting the tendering process for big supply contracts to the state properly, without any bribes being taken, nor any form of rigging etc.

Administrative law is the body of law that governs the activities of administrative agencies of government. Government agency action can include rule making, adjudication, or the enforcement of a specific regulatory agenda. Administrative law is considered a branch of public law. As a body of law, administrative law deals with the decision-making of the administrative units of government (for example, tribunals, boards or commissions) that are part of a national regulatory scheme in such areas as police law, international trade, manufacturing, the environment, taxation, broadcasting, immigration and transport. Administrative law expanded greatly during the twentieth century, as legislative bodies worldwide created more government agencies to regulate the social, economic and political spheres of human interaction
