This paper presents a number of issues related to the mobility of civil servants and to the politicizing the civil service in Romania in the period 2000-2010. Analysis of the politicization phenomenon has allowed identification of three stages: 2000-2004, 2005-2008 and 2009-present. Application of legislation within the civil service has allowed a considerable increase of the stability level. Professionalization of the prefect function did not generate a considerable increase in its level of stability. Lately it is noted an increased dependency of the public function to the political system, through legislative changes initiated at the government level. In this paper, using qualitative and quantitative methods, a number of issues related to mobility of civil servants and to the politicization of civil service are highlighted. For this study, there were used data sets from a sample of civil servants form the public administration. Civil servants’ oppinion is totally unfavorable to the process of politicizing the public administration.
