An empirical analysis of regional differences in municipal competitive procurement in Sweden
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Economics.
2001 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper studies regional differences in price and competition in municipal competitive procurement in Sweden. The bidding process is a first-price, sealed bid auction. The piecewise pseudo-maximum likelihood estimator presented in Donald and Paarsch (1993) is applied to data on cleaning service contracts. The results show higher estimated costs for completing the contract, but lower estimated bids in the major city area of Stockholm compared with the rest of the country. This is explained by lower profit margins and higher operational costs. An analysis is also carried out of why the lowest bidder is not always the contracted bidder in all auctions.
