Supporting Undoability in Systems Operations

Ingo Weber, Hiroshi Wada, Alan D. Fekete, Anna Liu, Len Bass
2013 USENIX Large Installation Systems Administration Conference  
Using this model, we check to which degree each operation is undoable. A positive outcome of this check means a formal guarantee that any sequence of calls to such operations can be undone.  ...  A negative outcome contains information on the properties preventing undoability, e.g., which operations are not undoable and why.  ...  When finding a weak plan, a planner does not produce a contingency plan, which we deem insufficient.  ...

Corruption in PPPs, incentives and contract incompleteness

Elisabetta Iossa, David Martimort
2016 International Journal of Industrial Organization  
In a public procurement setting, we discuss the desirability of completing contracts with state-contingent clauses providing for monetary compensations to the contractor when revenue shocks occur.  ...  In practice, projects may be of different complexity and more complex projects may exhibit more relevant contingencies.  ...  In practice, the planning and design of most PPP contracts involves two different layers of the governmental hierarchy: the central government (for example the national Department of Transport) and the  ...
