  4. 4. On specification and inference in the econometrics of public procurement

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : David Sundström; Umeå universitet.; [2016]

    Abstract : In Paper [I] we use data on Swedish public procurement auctions for internal regularcleaning service contracts to provide novel empirical evidence regarding green publicprocurement (GPP) and its effect on the potential suppliers’ decision to submit a bid andtheir probability of being qualified for supplier selection. We find only a weak effect onsupplier behavior which suggests that GPP does not live up to its political expectations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards efficient vehicle dynamics development From subjective assessments to objective metrics, from physical to virtual testing
