Notes

Budget-Constrained Procurement

We characterize optimal procurement mechanisms for a financially constrained buyer facing multiple suppliers with privately known costs. For the case of two ex-ante identical suppliers, we first establish the optimality of a simple direct mechanism, using basic duality arguments, within the class of all mechanism that have a dominant strategy equilibrium. We then provide a dynamic implementation of this mechanism.
