Student: Daria Nazarova

Supervisor: Sergey Parkhomenko

Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences

Educational Programme: Political Analysis and Public Policy (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2018

Since the system of public procurement of Russia not so long ago (in 2011 and 2013) was reformed in order to increase transparency, it is still an object of experts’ close attention. The crisis of 2014 that entailed an increase in the volume of public procurement only strengthened this attention due to public mistrust to the mechanism. The situation is different in Kazakhstan which is positively assessed in the reports of the OECD, the World Bank and other organizations that have objective methods of evaluation. And that cannot be said about Russia where many things are in doubt. This study was started in order to understand which country is better in organizing the procurement activity. Since both countries are representatives of the post-Soviet space, it was appropriate to apply the theory of policy capacity in interpretation of X.Wu, M.Ramesh and M.Howlett in terms of public procurement systems of the two countries. This, together with the collection of qualitative and quantitative data, enabled to answer the above-mentioned question.
