Environmental policy and firm financial performance
Horváthová, Eva ; Lízal, Lubomír (advisor) ; Janda, Karel (referee) ; Pavel, Jan (referee)
In my PhD thesis I investigate the relationship between corporates' financial and environmental performances. The concept of quantitative environmental performance measures was introduced to enable to compare and analyse environmental impacts of different socio­economic units e.g. companies, countries, regions. In my dissertation, I use environmental performance measures to examine their effect on the financial performance of different companies. In the first chapter, I apply a meta­analysis to examine the results of the previous studies which investigate the impact of firms' environmental performance on their financial performance. The outcomes propose that it is important to account for the omitted variable bias such as unobserved firm heterogeneity. The results suggest that it takes time for the environmental regulation to materialize into the financial performance, too. In the subsequent two chapters I study Czech firms over 2004­2008. First I study the intertemporal effects of corporates' environmental performance on financial ...
Impact of the Openness of Public Tenders and Traceability of the Beneficial Owner on the Price of Public Procurement
Stehlík, Petr ; Ochrana, František (advisor) ; Nemec, Juraj (referee) ; Pavel, Jan (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to analyse factors that contributes to public procurement overpricing in the Czech Republic. The paper combines use of quantitative and qualitative research methods. Existence of competition effect is proved, thus increase of competitors in selection procedure causes that final price decreases. Non-transparent suppliers in terms of traceability of beneficial owner is detected as next factor that contributes to overpricing. Also some types of contracts are showed as more problematic than others. Results of qualitative part of the research reveal other causes of overpricing, such as corruption, weak institutional environment or behaviour of public authorities. Public policy recommendations are presented at the end of the paper in order to improve current state of affairs.
Rethinking Corruption in the Czech Republic: A Mixed-Methods Approach to a Systemic Problem
Gawthorpe, Steven ; Frič, Pavol (advisor) ; Sičáková Beblavá, Emília (referee) ; Pavel, Jan (referee)
Systemic corruption is a common term amongst scholars and practitioners, yet there is sparse conceptual agreement and substantive analysis within the discourse. Regardless of the current deficit, there is considerable pioneering space and advantages to contrast against the overwhelming emphasis on individuals. This paper aims to broaden the conceptual scope of systemic corruption research through a pattern-to-process mixed-methods design. The design combines empirical data from the public procurement sector analyzing the spatiotemporal patterns of network behavior with a descriptive account of processes from in-depth interviews. The empirical approach statistically distinguishes the performance differentials of public procurement awards amongst firms that exhibit the characteristics of political influence from those that do not. This paper operationalizes that political influence is corruption when a public official would not have made the same decision without the special consideration of political affiliation, contribution, or network connection. After stripping away explanatory factors for firm competence, the data reveals that firms with influence characteristics win substantially more and more often performing similar work. The usage of geospatial cluster analysis, in conjunction with field...
The importance of small-scale public procurements in municipal budgets
Rod, Pavel ; Pavel, Jan (advisor)
This Master´s thesis is dealing with small scale public procurements. Small scale public procurements are a specific category of government contracts since they not as rigorously regulated by law as the sub-limit and over-the-limit contracts. The analysis is dealing with small scale public procurements in selected communities, specifically it studies the ratio of the value of small scale public contracts and the total value of public contracts. The analysis is extended with an example of two selected cities. In the final section, a regression analysis is conducted, which, similarly to previous chapters, studies the relation between small scale public procurements and population of selected municipalities.

How the Payment Model Influences the Waste Number and Structure
Šubrtová, Karolína ; Pavel, Jan (advisor) ; Tománková, Ivana (referee)
The purpose of this work is to evaluate a potential relation between the number of communal and separated waste produced by municipalities in the Czech Republic and related pricing method. I am trying to demonstrate that municipalities using fixed charges, which is still the dominant pricing method in the Czech Republic, produce more communal and less separated waste than municipalities using the variable charges. The survey consists data from 22 municipalities in 2015. There are three hypothesis for verification. The first one is based on fact that if municipality use fix charging than the number of communal waste would be higher than if they use variable charging. The second one suggest if municipality use variable charging, the habitants will be more motivated to separate waste and the total number of separated waste would be bigger. The last one is comparing the total number of separated waste with total waste produced.
Financing of Political Parties

This work discusses the financing of political parties. Therefore, we can find basic terms, principles and functioning of funding here as well as every single style of financing and its divisions. It is followed by analysis of data of selected political parties for the period of the years 2006 - 2015. There is always picked one year with parliamentary elections and one close-by with none elections. The culmination of my work is comparison of the observed results and assessment of dependence of whole income derived from one election on election expenses. It is obvious that the final results show significant statistical dependence.
