The committee’s secretaryship is provided by France Stratégie and by the Inspectorate General for Finances.

The first report, published in autumn 2021, focused on the macroeconomic analysis of the recovery plan from a European perspective, as well as on a first in itinere assessment of five measures: energy renovation of private housing, energy renovation of public buildings, support for investment and modernisation of industry, support for the industry of the future, and the "1 jeune, 1 solution” plan. To conclude its opinion, the committee stated that "the short-term objective is about to be reached, but the specific contribution of the France Recovery plan cannot be estimated at this stage", and it highlighted a risk: "The short-term recovery objective should be achieved without neglecting medium-term objectives”.

This year, the evaluation was extended to include a dozen of measures, including energy renovation of the buildings of local authorities, support for low emission vehicles, the plant protein plan, support carbon-free hydrogen, decarbonization of industry, reduction in production taxes, support companies’ equity, long-term partial activity and the FNE-Formation.
