The paper provides advice for practitioners on how to apply political economy tools to improve public procurement processes. At present, there are no analytical tools available that link political-economy analysis and procurement. This study is a first step to establish such a guide. Good practice tools already exist in both political-economy analysis and procurement analysis, and this paper should be regarded as a companion document to existing guidance on political-economy analysis and guidance of procurement analysis such as the OECD Methodology for Assessing Procurement Systems (MAPS).
