Innovations and business

The law says that 10–20 % of municupal procurement orders must be placed with small enterprises as a way to provide them with state support This paper presents an analysis of the participation rate of small enterprises in this procurement process. The analysis covers the municipal entities of the Ulyanovsk region and is based on the statistics for 2011–2012. Mathematical economic models were developed to estimate regularities and the existing differentiation of basic indicators that characterize the contract procurement system. The paper therefore discusses some proposals regarding the development of the new contract procurement system.
