Links I Liked [Public Procurement]

1. Lord Carter's report on NHS procurement is out. Apparently it recommends a deep cleaning. Or a good scrubbing.

2. 18F tests GitHub for reverse auctions for small pieces of coding work. Contracts start at $3499 and contractors bid down the price and are only paid if they deliver the code on time and with the expected quality. I think this is an incredible idea, but one of commenter has already put the finger where it hurts: potential collusion. However, in liquid markets such as web design/website coding, I think we'll be better off overall.

3. Abby Semple writes about the living wage in public procurement.

4. Corruption in Malaysian public procurement?

5. Albert writes about the definition of body of public law and illegal presumptions in restrictions of competition in public procurement.
