Why?
Auction is a device to induce competition.
For this reason it would be very important and interesting to
analyse the level of competition that has been reached in the
procurement auctions we have run up to now.
From the past we can learn whose practices that can make
auctions perform better and improve upon the whole auction
design, increasing savings and obtaining higher quality.

How?
Finding meaningful measures of competition is not an easy
task.
It seems appropriate to focus the analysis on the following
aspects:
 Economic value of the contract;
 Time length of the contract and frequency;
 Auction format;
 Number of lots and participants per lot;
 Awarding prices, Market prices, Public sector purchasing
prices;
 Awarding criteria (formula);
 Percentage of economic and technical points;
 Others?
