Competition Law Infringements in Public Procurement Markets

  • Avoiding, Detecting and Investigating Bid-Rigging Conspiracies
  • Half-day EU Competition Law Workshop

Online, 21 April 2021

Event number:

Area of law:


Public authorities in the EU spend around 14% of GDP per year on the purchase of services, works and supplies. When public procurement is affected by bid-rigging this can cause serious harm to the economy. It is essential that national authorities be well prepared to prevent, detect and investigate bid-rigging practices. Businesses can also suffer serious damage as a result of their participation in bid-rigging conspiracies and should know how to avoid being involved in such practices.

This online workshop aims to analyse the topic of bid-rigging from two different perspectives: that of the public authorities whose activity is related to the conduction and supervision of the tender process and that of businesses who should be aware of the risks of collusive tendering.

Key topics

  • How to design a tender to prevent and detect bid-rigging
  • Common red flags in procurement
  • Main challenges in the investigation of collusive tendering
  • Avoiding involvement in bid-rigging: dos and don’ts
  • Latest developments: The New Commission Notice on Bidrigging and recent CJEU judgements

Who should join?

Officials from national competition authorities, contracting authorities and public procurement review bodies, lawyers in private practice, inhouse counsel
