It is commonly known and definitely recognized that well­planned public administration in today’s democratic state of law must have universal sound basis. That means that a specified and clear segregation of duties, powers and responsibilities between individual public administration units shall be determined. Its very existence and functionality, first of all, shall be based on good relations with a citizen. Certainly, the citizen expects reliability, completeness, predictability, and transparency from it. In practice, public administration shall serve a citizen and public communities and not vice versa. Digitization of public administration is changing of current service provision state with the use of modern information technologies up to the level, which significantly decreases administrative load of public administration officers as well as load of natural and legal persons who use modern information technologies. Thus, the development of e­-Government aimed at improvement of the availability of services for citizens and simplification of actions within the frames of specific public administration activities is crucial for any state today. In current paper, we focus on the development of e­-Government in the Slovak Republic and consider in more detail its role for public administration development of the country.
