The determining factors of change, the emergence of new technologies respectively, individualization, delegation, decentralization, financial pressures, trends of internationalization, demographic evolution have had a significant impact on the overall evolution of the public sector.

The beginning of the 21st century emphasizes a new understanding of the concept of quality within the public sector, of that related to the quality of governing systems provided by the quality of „agreements in administration”, by the ability of public institutions to bring their contribution to the increase of living level of citizens and the involvement of the latter ones, of the society’s in public businesses.

The reform of public sector in our country has in view two directions. The first one aims at the increase of efficiency and efficacy of resources used by the public sector by increasing the consumer’s choosing capacity of the same service provided by more suppliers (competition increase in service supply). The second one includes the increase in public participation in the decision-making process regarding the quantity and quality of public services as well as the transparency regarding the way in which public policies are being established and implemented.
