Does e-procurement save the state money?

Autor: Marcos Singer, Konstantinidis, G., Roubik, E., Befferman, E.

Scientific literature reports scarce evidence of whether Internetbased procurement systems improve the efficiency of State purchases. We propose a methodology to estimate savings in: (i) the centralization of
administrative tasks, and (ii) price differentials due to a larger number of contractors and suppliers bidding on contracts. We test our methods with ChileCompra, the Chilean e-procurement agency. During 2007, 885 Chilean State agencies used this system to purchase US$4.5 billion in products and services. Our preliminary results show price reductions of 2.65% and administrative cost savings of 0.28%-0.38% between 2006 and 2007.
