Abstract Political citizenry and environments of public organizations complement ambiguous organizational justice processes to render enforcement of disciplinary action intractable, anarchic and ineffective. It is advanced that concerns with organizational compliance and subsequent administrative behaviors rather stem more from informal than bureaucratic processes. Administrators only engage with the latter on occasions of social-political dramas or in pursuance of organizational justice. Otherwise, enforcement of disciplinary practices largely bear informally negotiated and uncertain outcomes or motivated by such kind of disagreements, while similarly somehow constrained by bureaucratic ethos. Thus, organizational discipline is founded on bureaucratic processes largely subordinated into informal and politicized relationships.
