The purpose of this paper is to highlight a series of elements referring to transparency as an ethical operational value in the practice of administrative action. Transparency as an ethical value becomes a principle of good administrative practice, which promotes a series of constitutive values such as equality of chances and opportunities and respect for the dignity and autonomy of the individual in the process of administrative decision. The starting point of this article is the normativity specific to the Romanian public sphere, but the ethical values and the principles derived have a universal applicability in the systems of administrative ethics based on responsibility towards non-presence.
