ABSTRACT

This study analyzes the factors which have influenced non-compliant behavior in the two-stage competition process of the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) system of Public Procurement Service of Korea since 2009. Based on previous studies, expectations, accuracy, and effectiveness of policy were included as factors in the policy contents category. For the policy application group category, suppliers' psychology, pertinent suppliers that have experience with competitive bids, and capabilities were selected. In regard to the policy implementation group category, reliability of persons-in-charge, policy legitimacy, and extent of demand for policy were chosen. These nine prerequisite factors were ascertained to examine the relationship with the degree of non-compliance. Analysis of the focus group interview results reveals that expectations on policy effectiveness were the major factors that caused supplier non-compliance in the policy contents category. For the policy application group category, the group of pertinent suppliers with experience of competitive bidding was the most influential factor, while in the policy implementation group category, policy legitimacy was the most influential factor. The study found typical non-compliant behaviors, such as bringing about heated price competition due to excessively low sales prices, attempting to supply poor quality goods with sub-standard specifications, distorting price data, and trying to avoid the MAS two-stage competition process.
