1. Introduction
The political, economic, social and technological challenges of the present impose for the public sector
organizations to be flexible to changes, drawing up the answers that public sector consumers expect to
receive. Thus the management of change in public administration implies a series of processes of
legislative and institutional adaptation. The process of legislative adaptation of the public
administration aims at reshaping the legislation in accordance with both the external and the internal
influences at work.
The Romanian public administration provides answers to the challenges generated by the global
economic crisis, reshaping its legislation based on these influences. From the very beginning of the
economic crisis, the country has adopted a series of measures to counter its effects and to promote
transparency and predictability.
