    The dissemination of New Public Management principles was mainly studied in a neo-institutional perspective, the heterogeneity of practices being explained by an implicit hypothesis of loose-coupling. These principles seem to be spreading in French local governments and their non-profit partners on a voluntary basis. This study aims at studying this influence on the control of the relationships in a State - Local Governments - Non-Profits - Users network by looking into causes of possible loose-coupling. The theoretical perspective is based on recent developments in the neo-institutional theory and works on inter organizational control. A case-study is made in French local governments and their nonprofit partners.
