Effects of Regulatory Reforms in Public Procurement: the Case of National University in Russia

This paper analyses the impact of reform and different regulation regimes on effectiveness of procurement of a large state university in the period from 2008 to 2012. We will evaluate the impact on its procurement effectiveness parameters of two significant changes in the public procurement regulation: transfer to electronic auctions from 2010 under the Federal Law and adoption by this organization of its own Procurement Provision from 2011. We show that transfer to electronic auctions leads to higher competition and more significant price decreases, whereas the adoption of Procurement provision has an opposite effect. Regarding delays in contracts execution, the first reform has no effect and the second regulation change result in decreasing of delays.
