Московская юридическая неделя. Международная научно-практическая конференция "Стратегия национального развития и задачи российской юридической науки"
The paper is devoted to the analysis of participation of small and medium business in public procurement. In this article different points of view on the effectiveness of the support of small and medium companies through state procurement are presented. The hypothesis of the low level of participation of small companies in state procurement is refused on the basis of the analysis of the protocols of participation small and medium enterprises in purchases conducted by major procurers in Moscow. However, the assumption that the level of participation in public procurement for small and medium enterprises depends on the field of activity is confirmed.
We address the external effects on public sector efficiency measures acquired using Data Envelopment Analysis. We use the health care system in Russian regions in 2011 to evaluate modern approaches to accounting for external effects. We propose a promising method of correcting DEA efficiency measures. Despite the multiple advantages DEA offers, the usage of this approach carries with it a number of methodological difficulties. Accounting for multiple factors of efficiency calls for more complex methods, among which the most promising are DMU clustering and calculating local production possibility frontiers. Using regression models for estimate correction requires further study due to possible systematic errors during estimation. A mixture of data correction and DMU clustering together with multi-stage DEA seems most promising at the moment. Analyzing several stages of transforming society’s resources into social welfare will allow for picking out the weak points in a state agency’s work.
