Assumptions for Contracting in Local Self-Government Institutions

Violeta Kavaliauskaite

Abstract


The article analyses contracting in local self-government institutions. First, it introduces the concept of contracting and its development, then identifies factors and conditions that influence the readiness of local self-government institutions for contracting. Finally, the theoretically established assumptions for successful contracting are tested in the empirical study to reveal the peculiarities of contracting in Lithuanian municipalities. The assumptions for contracting in this article are established by forming the approach to contracting as an organizational change, whose success is dependent on readiness for that change, especially in the social environment with underdeveloped system of regulation and limited practices.
