The Romanian Digitalization Authority is currently proposing a new vision in the public sector through the digital transformation component. It's a vision of the business environment. It is estimated that the benefits of digital transformation, such as efficiency, transparency, and simplicity, could lead to much higher process productivity. The vision that ADR will develop in its work is based on the awareness of the need for new technologies by the leaders of public institutions, the continuous adaptation to the requirements of citizens, quality, secure and fast online public services. However, the question arises whether this vision also considers the perspective of sustainable development in Romania in terms of sustainable development indicators. To be able to answer this question, we used as a research method the documentary analysis doubled by an analysis of the indicators of the sustainable development of Romania for the last five years. The review of the specialized literature gave us the chance to identify the particularities of the digitalization of public administration from other countries and to highlight the specific characteristics of Romania. A comparative analysis of sustainable development indicators will be the subject of our further research.
