The intention of the regional development policy is to provide equal opportunities especially for disadvantaged townships. Contrary to this, empirical evidence shows that very similar settlements have diverse tendering activities. By tendering activity we mean settlements' participation in the project proposal activity. Th is paper presents the determining factors of local governments' tendering activities in the Kaposvár micro-region from Hungary. The objective factors aff ecting tendering activity we fi nd the site and position of the settlement, the number and composition of the population, the number of economic institutions, etc.
