Abstract

Public procurement is increasingly becoming a core responsibility for many public organizations. Some public organizations outsource such large volumes, that their level of public service provision is strongly affected by the performances delivered by their contractors. Especially for such high-outsourcing public organizations, it is crucial to achieve high standards in procurement. Recognizing that procurement instruments shape the procurement process and affect contractor performance, this PhD thesis examines the notion that purposeful management of these instruments is an essential organizational capability to continuously meet these standards.
