Summary/Abstract: The public values are currently a mark in the decision-making process in the public management sector. The theory of Public Value (or the New Public Service) confers an important role to managers that are seeking "to maintain the organization's legitimacy in the eyes of the public". Its essence consists to assume full responsibility by the managers and the organization that they lead, both for the citizens and for the politicians who formulate the public policies. This paper brings into focus the importance of the concept of responsibility in the public management and its relationship with ethics.
