Index of Rationality 18
The Index of Rationality no.18 is developed for the following three types of products:
- school interactive boards;
- pellets with minimum heating capacity of 4.6 kwh/kg and pellets with heating capacity of 4.9 to 5.3 kwh/kg; and
- print paper.
Development of individual indices for these products covered a total of 36 national and local institutions that have organized public procurements for these types of goods in the second half of 2021. For the purpose of obtaining information related to prices of analysed goods and services, as well as their technical characteristics, FOI requests were sent to all contracting authorities whose public procurements are recorded in the Electronic Public Procurement System. The idea behind the index of rationality for these three types of products is to detect possible differences in price and to help contracting authorities learn about price variations thereof that would allow them to work on improving rationality of their public spending in the future.
