Урегулирование конфликтов в сфере государственных закупок в России и Казахстане
The paper analyzes conflict resolution strategies in public procurement in Russia and Kazakhstan based on a supplier survey. The results showed that suppliers in Kazakhstan were generally less likely to report a conflict with a procurer, both before and after the conclusion of a contract. In turn, the conducted econometric analysis confirmed the hypothesis that Russian suppliers, whose indirect indicators suggest that they are affiliated with procurers, are less likely to encounter conflict situations in public procurement. As indirect indicators of the affiliation of suppliers with procurers, the question of the attitude of suppliers to the practice of deliberate choice, when the procurer selects a supplier before the formal procurement procedure, was used. In addition, the empirical analysis showed that in both countries, suppliers who were not inclined to trust the court and noted high costs of participation in litigation were more likely to use the strategy of direct negotiations with the procurer to resolve conflicts in public procurement.
