Economics of Public Procurement
Public procurement is a vast field for both theoretical and empirical research. Our research group studies the problems that are common at various stages of procurement process - from the selection of sellers, through the peculiarities of different procedures, to opportunistic behavior during the contract performance. We also analyze the institutional features of the environment, in which public procurement takes place. For the empirical research we collect and use the unique database of public procurement in Russian regions.
