Centralization in Public Procurement (with a case study)

Visibility: Open to anyone

    I used this ppt presentation for a talk at the European Commission in March 2014. The purpose was to highlight the main challenges when designing centralized (at least to some some extent) public procurement strategies from an economist's standpoint. The document also describes the main features of the Italian "way" of aggregating public demand for goods and services.

    Most of the economic logic borrows from a joint paper with M. Sparro that is freely accessible through the link: http://www.rei.unipg.it/rei/article/view/17
