For this purpose, a dataset provided by the Electronic Procurement Service Unit of Badung Local Government of Bali Province that covers the entire government procurement auction for the years 2012-2017 were analyzed using a linear regression analysis. Results indicated a positive and significant relationship between the estimated cost and the number of auction participants of government eprocurement.

Finally, the number of auction participants has a positive and significant impact on the efficiency of the procurement in local government organization. These findings have several implications on design of government e-procurement.
