Оценка издержек заказчика в российской системе госзакупок (на примере Воронежского государственного университета)
The paper is focused on the problem of estimating costs which are incurred by customers, suppliers and regulators in the Russian system of public procurement. In this paper we adapted for Russian conditions the methodology elaborated by PwC for European Commission in 2011. On this methodological basis we estimated procurement costs of one big Russian public customer – Voronezh state university (VSU). We showed that in absolute terms cost of procurement in VSU is comparable with average level in EU. However as a percentage of purchased goods and services cost of procurement in EU is 8 times lower. We explain the reasons for this large gap and formulate policy recommendations both for public customers and relevant authorities.
