This research aimed to analyze the perception of the Mid-level Bureaucrats (BME’s) in the implementation of the REUNI in the scope of the UFG in the period from 2007 to 2012. This objective was based on the importance of understanding who are and what these BME’s do in public institutions as a contribution to the overcoming of the apparent conceptual limbo of the theme, and still to study them from the perspective of a public policy already implemented. For that, the study was done through the case study, with documentary research, observation in the field and interview with the aid of semi-structured script to the implementing BMEs of REUNI in the UFG. The specific objectives of the work and the semi-structured script were categorized by the following factors: (i) - Structural, (ii) - Human, (iii) - Public Policy and (iv) - State. Through the Content Analysis it was possible to extract descriptive data and qualitative analyzes. The results showed that the UFG was unable to meet the program's Global Goals, although it complied with most of the Guidelines stipulated by the MEC in decree. With emphasis on the expansion of policies of inclusion and student assistance, moving from an "elite" to an "egalitarian" university. The BME's personal satisfaction in implementing an affirmative public policy and trust between the implementers and their teams stands out as a positive point. As a negative point, the regulation of the policy considered as cast is highlighted, which made it difficult to customize the same in front of the obstacles observed by the actors involved at the moment of implementation. It is concluded that unanimously all BME’s recognize the great importance of REUNI in the UFG in terms of structure, personnel and teaching, as well as affirmative and assistance actions. And that the role of BME's could be better fulfilled if there were better technical and emotional preparation for this.
