Abstract

This study explores the factors which ensure efficiency in public procurement through the economy and transparency. This paper examines the public procurement rules of Punjab 2014. The study is conducted in three stages. In the first stage, in-depth interviews are conducted by procurement experts to identify important factors which bring economy and transparency to the public procurement process. In the second stage, a comprehensive questionnaire is developed considering identified factors. Finally, various types of analyses are used to examine identified factors. The results of the study indicate that annual procurement planning, use of ICT, capacity building, strong redressal system, and tender financial limit are the key factors that bring efficiencies in public procurement. This paper contributes to understanding the core factors which may influence public procurement efficiency. The study ensures a healthy contribution in saving public funds by achieving efficiencies in public procurement.
