Index of Rationality 19
The Index of Rationality no.19 is developed for the following types of products:
- - air purifiers;
- - laptops; and
- - industrial salt.
Development of individual indices for these products covered a total of 21 national and local institutions that have organized public procurements for these types of goods in the course of 2020 and 2021. For the purpose of obtaining information related to prices of analysed goods and services, FOI requests were sent to all contracting authorities whose public procurements were 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.
