In the public policy process, the values are present. A public policy project can not be implemented if it does not receive public support of beneficiaries, of politicians, or of professionals involved in this public cycle. Even if there are taken into account all stages of policy cycle (the problem definition, the public agenda settings, choosing a solution, its implementation and its evaluation) or only the final stage, the evaluation, the presence of values is inherent, always beeing a process of settling policy projections. The article aims to operationalize and analyze the basic values which can be identified in the area of public policy: adequacy, equity, fairness, efficiency, effectiveness, sustainability, sensitivity and impact. The study tries to find a possible hierarchy of values at local government level in order to determine an axiological vein leading to good public policy.
