The purpose of this project is to develop a system of indicators to assess shortcomings, identify good practices and create solid foundations to improve public procurement in Spain. The information provided by the Public Sector Procurement Platform is a very valuable source of data on public procurement, as it provides information on the details and results of calls for tenders issued by all the Spanish public sector procurement bodies. This first report analyzes regional-level public procurement in the Valencian Community from two perspectives. First, it assesses the importance of public procurement from the point of view of the budget it represents, given that public procurement accounts for 48% of the regional government’s total expenditure. Second, it estimates the duration of the procurement procedures and their main shortcomings. The information analyzed in this document comes from the ContraPubIvie2018 database, created by the Ivie, which contains a sample of 3,791 contracts registered mainly between 2017 and 2018.
