Abstract

Procurement in the field of defence is a complicated and long-term process, whose success strongly depends on the corresponding legislation of the EU level, state level and internal directives of the MoD. Despite this fact, there are several possibilities for how to make public procurement within the MoD more efficient. The aim of this paper is to show the critical points of the public contracts awarding process and find out the options for its improvement by using discrete-event simulation as a technique for analysis of the current system built up the statistics data. The final experiment brings possible scenarios for decision-makers (the MoD contracting authorities) related to the adjustment of the logistical channel structure and its specific procedures timing in order to improve the system of public procurement within (not only) the MoD and its efficiency.

 

Key words: public procurement, discrete-event modelling and simulation, procurement efficiency
