Abstract

Street level bureaucracy is a government employee who provides community services where their activities are often trapped in the bureaucracy red tape phenomenon which is formalized and too procedural. This condition sometimes requires the actors involved to take discretionary action. The main objective of this study is to explain the relationship between red tape and discretion in the implementation of food diversification policies. The methodological approach used in this study is qualitative with an explanatory type to explain the implications of the bureaucratic red tape phenomenon as well as discretion making by street level bureaucracy on the implementation of food diversification policies. The theoretical pattern used is the policy implementation network, namely the relative stability of a network’s membership, the network’s relative insularity, the strength of resource dependencies in overcoming bureaucratic red tape and supporting discretion by street level bureaucracy. The results show that there is a red tape phenomenon in the bureaucracy, such as rigid and convoluted procedures as well as formalization of hierarchical rules and structures that lead to policy delay. The discretion taken by the actors has also not been able to optimally answer public needs. In addition, the policy network sector, namely the relative stability of a network’s membership, the network’s relative insularity, the strength of resource dependencies has not been able to run effectively according to what has been understood.
