Before June 2010, the Musée de l’Orangerie was a national service responsible to the Ministry of Culture and Communication. Since 1 June 2010 (Decree of 27 May 2010), the Musée de l’Orangerie has joined the Musée d’Orsay (declared a public establishment on 26 December 2003) as part of one and the same publicly administered establishment.
The public establishment of the Musée d'Orsay and Musée de l'Orangerie brings together the Musée d'Orsay, Musée de l'Orangerie and Musée Hébert. The Musée de l’Orangerie des Tuileries is a national museum responsible to the Ministry of Culture and Communication, as are the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée Hébert.

It has its own board of directors, presided over by the director of the public establishment. It decides the budget and pricing policy.The scientific committee agrees on the establishment's scientific and cultural policy before submitting it to the board, and defines plans for acquisitions, loans and deposits.
The acquisitions commission looks at the acquisition policy in general and considers the acquisition of certain works for the collections.
The public establishment allocates at least 16% of revenue from ticket sales to the permanent collections for acquiring works of art.
The artworks that form the museum’s collection are a national collection and are allocated to the Musée de l’Orangerie, which holds them.
The Musée de l’Orangerie currently has a staff of about 100 and the Musée d’Orsay of about 700. Some departments, such as publications and exhibitions, operate across the two sites; others are present in both museums but have close operational links. Certain activities, such as surveillance are completely autonomous.
