Title: Reconciling conflicting policy objectives in public contracting: the enabling role of capabilities
Author: Cabral, Sandro
Publication Date: 2017
Abstract: This paper analyses how capabilities can reconcile conflicting objectives in policy driven public contracting. Results obtained from a quasi-experiment involving a policy intervention to favour small firms (SMEs) in Brazil show that public manager’s contract management capabilities can promote cost savings, increased responsiveness (government-level outcomes), and enhanced buyer-supplier coordination when favoured firms are successful in public contracting. Execution capabilities of private suppliers positively influence firm-level outcomes by attenuating the severity of sanctions against favoured firms due to deficient provision. The paper highlights the mechanisms for leveraging performance in public-private interactions when conflicting goals are present despite inherent contract incompleteness and bureaucratic rigidity, thus adding to the current knowledge of strategic management in the context of public organizations.
