 The projects considered in these papers describe energy problems that public administrations face. Approaches proposed by the authors of the papers to solving all these problems are based on special mathematical models underlying corresponding decision-support systems. Helping such systems penetrate the field of public administration management is one of the major goals of this Special Issue.

Article
Sanina A., Balashov A., Rubtcova M. International Journal of Public Administration. 2021.

The article is devoted to the understanding of digital government transformation (DGT) as key to improving public administration and governance. The paper complements the debate regarding DGT rationale in public administration, providing theoretical and empirical analysis of its socio-economic impact and performance in governance. The empirical part is based on two regression analyses exploring indicators of DGT and public administration performance. The article concludes that (1) DGT is understood as innovation, but innovation in the public sector is also commonly associated with DGT, (2) this innovation helps to reshape the governance to match the society’s needs, (3) the policy-based approach to DGT is not enough explanation of its rationale and efficiency, and (4) there are certain improvements in the socio-economic sphere that are related to DGT and thus help one understand its meaning for the contemporary world.

This paper presents a survey-based methodological approach to detect potential opportunism by counterparts who are linked with agents through contractual relations. The methodology proposes asking counterparts about attitudes toward some behaviors of agents, which are undesirable from the principal and benevolent counterpart perspective. The approach identifies the potential opportunism of counterparts based on the intensity with which they justify such behavior and provide unrealistic assessments of commonly known problems. The approach is especially important in a situation where the rules are inconsistent with reality and the principal can no longer disentangle the benevolent and opportunistic behavior of the agent. The authors test this approach by conducting a survey of procurers and suppliers of public procurement contracts in Russia.

Using public procurement to foster innovation is a widespread practice worldwide. However, in Russia public procurement has had no significant impact on developing innovation. Empirical research with expert interviews and qualitative and quantitative data analysis has revealed the reasons for poor performance to promote innovation, including tough anti-trust and anti-corruption rules, limited use of tenders as well as “life-cycle cost” criteria, and poor management by the procuring agencies. The analysis revealed the contradiction between the rules designed for fighting corruption and monopolies and the need to stimulate innovation through procurement.
