Abstract

Public procurement plays a key role, both in the proper functioning of public administration and in the realization of broader policy objectives. This article aims to present a methodology to assess the Brazilian public procurement market based on governmental statistics, as well as reflect on the potential of public procurement policy for the development of the country. The paper found that public procurement took up an average of 13.8% of the Brazil GDP during 2006-2012. The Brazilian public procurement market is comparable to that of a typical OECD country. These findings imply great potential for public procurement in Brazil as a policy instrument for promoting the country's development.
