    Abstract

    The paper focuses on the analysis of the current Czech law on public procurement. Its aim is to describe the most important problems that occur in the implementation of public procurement, and cause ineffi ciency in the management of public fi nance, lack of transparency and possible corruption. In this context the paper mainly mentiones the following: lack of motivation of public authorities to demand innovative, more sophisticated solutions through public contracts and thereby making them more effi cient, unused potential of small and medium-sized enterprises within the framework of public contracting, economic ineffi ciency of public contracts, lack of openness of public contracts , lack of transparency of the public contract process resulting in leaving room for corruption or discrimination of bidders etc. The main goal of this paper is to propose concrete measures to help solve the problems identifi ed. The most important are these: 50% reduction in the current limit for "minor contracts",obligation for public authorities to assure three bids, removing rigidities in the act (clarifying the legislation), mandatory publication of the procurement process on the Internet etc.
