Abstract

The study of procurement remains an area that is significantly underexplored with public administration. There is little that we know about the decision-making dynamics at the individual level. We have no empirical studies that address the public procurement-politics relationship and there is only a minimal academic attention to the manner in which individual values affect the decision that public procurement specialists make. Within increasing reliance on outsourcing, contracting-out and publicprivate-partnerships the role of public procurement within current governance will only continue to grow.
