I. Introduction
The public administration is presented under a multitude of concepts and theories meant to define and
explain it. The dynamic of the social life determines a change and a modelling of all the structures,
institutions, organisms consisted of, and make the public administration work.
As a state, Romanian society and particularly the public administration are confronted with essential,
difficult challenges generated by the evolution of the contemporary world, challenges to which we’ll
have to answer in the future.
Present time demonstrates that the theory and practice of the public administration are in a perpetual
and radical change, under the influence of some contextual factors, extremely different : historical,
political, geographical, cultural and economical ones. The understanding on the whole working
mechanism in the public administration mainly requires the knowledge of the assigned meanings.
The term “administration” comes from the Latin,administer’, a compound word made up of the
prefix,ad’, which shows direction and the noun, minister’ that means servant, helper, agent. The
verb,administro’ means to give a helping hand, to lead/run or to guide.
The Dictionary of the Romanian Language explains the verb “to administrate” as to direct/manage, to
rule, while the collocation “public administration” as the totality of the administrative authorities from
a state, section or service in charge with the administrative problems of an institution or economic
agent.
In “ Dictionary of American Government and Politics “, edited by Dorsey Press, Chicago, in 1988,
under the guidance of professor Jay M. Shafritz from the University in Pittsburg, more explanations
are given to the collocation “ public administration “.
