This qualitative case study has analyzed the democratic and economic values within the public procurement with social considerations in a municipal owned company. The aim has been to enlighten which values that are represented in the governance of public procurement with social considerations. The empirical material consists of interviews, which have been interpreted from a perspective of economic and democratic values. The study has shown that several aspects of economic and democratic values are both believed to be fulfilled within the process of public procurement with social considerations. This result has led to the conclusion that the aim of introducing social considerations within the public procurement is likely an example of a development towards a more complex public administration. In which, both economic and democratic values are expected to be fully represented within the public administration. (Less)
