Abstract: This article presents a comparative cross-country study in order to know the level of web service implementation at the municipality level (what are the public services that municipalities offer to their citizens using the electronic platforms). We've accessed each municipality web portal from Romania (103 in total) and using a defined scale; and rated every one very strictly. Most of the elements used in this research are taken from previous studies, adapted afterwards to take in relevant values for my country. Although there are numerous Romanian initiatives of connecting to the Internet even smaller communities, like small towns or even communes, we have chosen the municipalities due to the positive relation between the number of inhabitants and the capacity to e-Government of the local public administration. All of the 103 Romanian municipalities have been analysed and the results obtained will be presented on each class (there are 5 different classes - e-doc, transparency, etc.), but also by the final results.
