Modality of Determining The Risk Scores and Their Ranking for The Direct Acquisition Made in SEAP

Abstract

In order to shape a representative economic model, meant to be used for the analysis of direct acquisitions conducted by the public institutions on the electronic platform called SEAP (Electronic System of Public Acquisitions) we need to make a series of calculations which can lead to the establishment of risk scores for this types of acquisitions or procurements and their ranking, This hierarchy shall provide the public institutions with valuable items of information for the awareness of direct acquisitions particularities.

The Effectiveness of fMRI Data when Combined with Polygraph Data

Abstract

The Integrated Zone Comparison Technique (IZCT) was utilized with computerized polygraph instrumentation and the Academy for Scientific Investigative Training’s Horizontal Scoring System ASIT PolySuite algorithm, as part of a blind study in the detection of deception. This paper represents a synergy analysis of combining fMRI only deception data with each of the three individual physiological parameters that are used in polygraph. They include the electro-dermal response (EDR), pneumo, and cardio measurements. In addition, we compared the detection accuracy analysis using each single parameter by itself. The fMRI score and each individual polygraph parameter score on individual subjects were averaged to establish an overall score.

Global Competitiveness of Europe: A Robust Assessment

Abstract

National (global) competitiveness became the central issue during the global crisis. Using the values of the three main subdimensions of the Global Competitiveness Index, we propose alternative DEA-based competitiveness indicators. In our approach, the index is nested in the more general measure of the competitiveness-given-performance indicator. We find that globally competitive European countries do not transform competitiveness into income per capita efficiently. Decomposition of the scores suggests that most of the relative inefficiency concentrates in innovation activity. The results proved robust against the CCR model used in previous research as well as principal component analysis.
