The purpose of this article is to measure the efficiency of Public Administration in the process of strategic alignment of people management with strategic organizational guidelines. The strategic alignment of Human Resources consists on adapting the people management strategy to the organization's strategy. An efficient institutional strategic alignment with the people management area is an essential condition for the success of the business. The first point for people management to be aligned with the organizational strategy regards to the fact that the human resources management strategy must derive from the corporate strategic plan. Recent studies demonstrate that there is an important change in the strategic focus related to people management, with the transition from a strategy focused on control to a strategy linked to commitment standing out as the most significant change. This article was developed through a bibliographic study on the strategic management of people in public administration and, also, by conducting a field research that covered 20 (twenty) units of the administrative structure from the government of the state of Rondônia - Brazil. The method used was the case study supported by a mathematical model developed by the authors, aiming to evaluate the event qualitatively and quantitatively in a more profound manner. The results demonstrated that the actions of the Public Administration, regarding the strategic alignment of the Human Resources area with the organizational strategy, are at an inadequate level of efficiency.
