The Development Reform Cabinet (Indonesian: Kabinet Reformasi Pembangunan) was the Indonesian cabinet which served under President BJ Habibie during his term as President from 21 May 1998-20 October 1999.

Despite having the word "Reform" as part of its name, the Development Reform Cabinet consisted mostly of the names which had served in Suharto's Seventh Development Cabinet. There were however some reformist actions taken with the line up of this cabinet. The Governor of the Central Bank and the Attorney General were originally left out of the cabinet as part of Habibie's desire to make the two positions independent of Executive control [1] Habibie was successful in giving the Governor of the Central Bank independent authority although he would continue to retain control of the Attorney General. Another reformist step taken was the inclusion of United Development Party member and future Chairman Hamzah Haz instead of keeping the cabinet exclusive to Golkar and ABRI members.
