Work Package 3: Transformation of Individual Drivers and Barriers of Collaboration

 

WP3 seeks to explain what drives civil servants’ willingness to collaborate with the private sector in a policy delivery setting. It examines the extent to which local civil servants consider economic, environmental and social criteria and the ICT dimension when awarding a contract to a private company. It also measures how much these criteria are worth to them.

Work Package 3 aims at answering two related questions: (1) to what extent do local civil servants consider economic, environmental, social and innovative criteria when awarding a contract to a company? and (2) how much are these criteria worth to local civil servants?

To answer these questions, WP3 focuses on:

  • Local civil servants’ behaviour when awarding a contract to a company.
  • Policy delivery setting.

We conduct:

  • A discrete choice experiment to examine local civil servants’ behaviour.

Discrete Choice Experiment

The discrete choice experiment (DCE) is a stated preferences method that is used when individuals’ preferences for a particular product or service are not directly observable. The DCE is currently conducted with local civil servants responsible for waste collection in Belgium, Estonia, Germany, Norway and Spain.
