Contemporary public administration faces many challenges. Globalisation flows represent practical aspects of globalisation as well as functions of public administration represent practical aspect of government. The presented study regarding the challenges of public administration viewed within the context of contemporary globalisation processes concentrates its attention on the metamorphoses of public administration functions. The aim of presented paper is to analyse, with the help of inductive and deductive methods, the impacts of contemporary globalisation processes on the realization of public administration in the conditions of Slovak Republic. Our hypothesis predicts that the globalisation processes and globalisation flows influence the execution of public administration in the Slovak Republic. Presented paper concentrates its attention on the relationship between globalisation flows and public administration functions. The main benefit of the paper is based on the finding that contemporary globalisation flows could be significant factor in transformations of the public administration functions. Finally, the impact of globalisation processes is obvious in each of four basic functions of public administration – administration function, self-organisation function, regulatory function and function of providing public goods and public services. We cannot say that these forces are dominant, but globalisation processes are important factor that should be considered.

 Key words: globalisation processes, globalisation flows, impacts of globalisation processes, public administration functions, transformation of public administration
