Summary/Abstract: The evolution of public administration involves, like any ”live organism”, change and development. Along the years there has been felt the need of transition from the traditional model of public administration, known as bureaucratic and over-regulated, to another one much up to date with the contemporary needs of the beneficiaries. This new approach is called the new public management and the present paper presents a theoretical description of what is the new public management, how it is perceived from the specialist’s point of view and why it was influenced by the private sector. The conclusion drawn from this study is that even though the new public management was applied in developed countries and should be taken into consideration in emerging countries, as a reform of the public administration, this new model has its lacks due to which its application didn’t always lead to the pointed results.
