Endogenous split awards as a bid protest and procurement management tool
Coughlan, Peter J.
MetadataShow full item record
This research explores split procurement awards as a tool to rationalize the bid protest process and potentially improve the general procurement process. It discusses split procurement as an award protest and procurement management tool, and models bidding incentives and outcomes with both fixed or exogenous split awards and variable or endogenous split awards (where the split depends on the relative competitiveness of the vendors’ bids). Endogenous split awards can increase the competitiveness of vendor bids relative to fixed-split awards, while reducing the incentives for frivolous contract protests. Endogenously split contract awards can also improve the general acquisition process, particularly if retaining competition is important for follow-on procurement actions.
