Abstract: Consider a principal bundle on a base which is compact and has finite fundamental group. We give necessary and sufficient conditions, in terms of the Atiyah sequence of , for to be locally isomorphic to a bundle of the form for a Lie group and a closed subgroup of . The proof involves the careful integration of certain infinitesimal actions of a Lie algebra on and the universal cover of .
