Statistical Measures in Economic Analysis of Public Procurement: Applications to Polish Market

Public procurements may be considered at central and sub-central levels and state -owned enterprises. In value terms, the largest opportunities arise in the industrialised countries and emerging economics as well. While it is possible to observe the rules dealing with public procurement, it is rather difficult to see how they apply in practice.Poland joined the European Union in 2004. The latest enlargement of the EU changed the rules and opened up the public procurement market on domestic production in new member states. The paper aims to examine application of some selection criteria which the awarding authorities use in the public procurement procedure. The main aspect to be dealt with is numerical criteria which may prevent firms not fulfilling them from participating in some public contract award procedures.Estimations are made on the basis of information coming from studies carried out in the European Commission, the OECD, and the author's own empirical investigations using data from Bulletin of Public Procurement in Poland. Some results come directly from the Office of Public Procurement in Warsaw.This paper was presented at the 16th International Conference of the International Trade and Finance Association in Lodz, Poland, May 12, 2006.
