This is determined by the relevance of the study. Theoretical analysis. The main corruption risks are: taking bribes employee taking the decision to purchase; bribing decision-makers on the purchase by the customer; the provision of classified information (prices, terms and conditions) to third parties. Discussion of results. The basic contradictions in the system of public procurement are: the contradiction between the objectives of public procurement and the means to achieve these goals, between the selfish economic interests of the two parties to the transaction, between the public interest and the interests of participants in the transaction, that is, the commercial interests of parties to the transaction, between the need to strengthen the role of the state and the weakening of its role in modern conditions.
