AbstractIt is aimed to reach international standards at procurement of goods or services and works by the state with the law no. 4734 constituted for preventing mismanagement, waste and corruption in public procurements. However, activities and payments which are carried out within this extent are open fields for corruption. Thus, this situation enables law provisions and also the power of Public Procurement Authority (PPA) to be rearranged for the purposes of interest groups when necessary. So, our study is trying to question the content of arrangements which were prepared with great expectations at first during the period of current government, but since 2003, when they were put into practice, they have been changed and criticized significantly. Besides, the impressions in public opinions about the idea that the Law forms a basis for the waste of resources have become the research subject.
