In the last decade, the phenomenon of e-government in Europe has become a viable alternative in the provision of public services. Despite high interest for the assimilation approach and the operationalization of e-governance platforms, Europe is still fragmented in two categories of states. On the one hand, the developed countries are in the egovernance stage which has reached its maturity (single points of for services delivery and orientation toward citizens). On the other hand, there the transition economies which are still in the stage of recognition of the potential benefits of this new system. Based on global and European studies provided by authorized bodies, this paper aims to present Romania's position in relation to the rest of the Europe in terms of the development of online public services.
