The RATP Group
Overseen by an EPIC (industrial and commercial public undertaking), RATP is a State-funded public corporation. Its Board of Directors is governed by the "three thirds" rule: a third of its representatives must be from the French State, a third must be staff members and the remaining third must be "qualified people".
RATP is led by a chairman appointed for a five-year period in a decree signed by the President of France. Pierre Mongin, Chairman and CEO, who had held the position since 2 July, 2006, was re-appointed Chairman of RATP by decree on 29 July, 2009. On 23 July, 2009, the Board of Directors’ term of office was also renewed for a period of five years.

Sitting on the board
Two permanent commissions prepare Board deliberations:
A third permanent body, called the Commission for Innovation and Customer Service was created in June, 2009. This body, which is open to all Board members, examines, in particular, the case files relating to the services that RATP provides, notably the Company’s service quality performance indicators (primarily criteria specified in the STIF contract), quality approaches and planned service innovations.
An audit committee comprised of six Board members, which is responsible for advising the Board, notably in regards to Company and consolidated accounts, specifically where this relates to the reliability of the information systems being used for their preparation.
The Board has two working groups that are open to all Board members. These bodies scrutinise RATP’s debt and competitiveness levels.

RATP operates its historic Île-de-France networks within the framework of a contract with STIF (Syndicat des Transports d’Île-de-France), the transport organising authority for the Paris region.
The ARAF law dated 3 November, 2009 regarding the organisation and regulation of rail transport radically reformed RATP's legal and economic model for the first time since 1948. This law (article 5) adapted the regulations governing passenger transport in Île-de-France in order to bring them up to date with the European OSP (public service obligation) regulation regarding the opening of the passenger transport market to competition in December, 2009.
As the public transport market in Île-de-France is now open to competition, STIF must place the operators in competition with each other for the new services. For the existing networks, a transition period is planned. This is:
RATP owns the Île-de-France infrastructure networks it operates on (metro, tramway, RER). It is responsible for managing these networks, ensuring they are properly maintained and maximising safety.
The rolling stock (bus, metro, RER, tramway) is owned by STIF.
