Abstract: Institutions and institutional structures play an important role in the theory and research of processes involved in economic progress. The competitive position of territorial units depends on their effective performance, especially on the efficiency of local governments. Skills, qualifications and functional abilities of local authorities gain importance. In this context, creating and stimulating the economic growth locally is essential, because it equates with building the foundation of development processes in all areas of life. Our purpose was to evaluate the institutional efficiency of local authorities manifested by administrative decisions they take. The data submitted to our analysis consisted of appeals against decisions taken by local governments. The objective was to analyze the appeals filed to local government appeal boards and how they were examined in compliance with the binding law. The time period spanned the years 2007 to 2013. The analysis covered appeals lodged to the Local Government Appeal Board in Olsztyn.
