Meritocratic Aspects Concerning Performance Evaluation in the Public Sector - A Case Study for Romania
AbstractThe current paper approaches the theoretical and practical fundamental issues concerning the use of meritocratic criteria in public performance evaluation. Based on papers dealing with the meritocratic approach for the creation and development of a civil service system or papers applying the statistical methodology concerning the meritocratic features in the private sector, our research inscribes within the area of NPM development, referring especially to performance evaluation, taking into consideration the meritocratic criteria. The individual performance inscribes within the organisational performance for a public organisation, which represents by excellence a bureaucracy. Therefore, the evaluation of the "distance" towards meritocracy will be achieved within an organisational framework, the conclusions being valid for the civil service system level, reflecting civil services development. The Romanian civil service system is analysed during a period of four years, thus representing an outstanding example for the theoretical considerations
