The aim of this seminar is to explore the notion of bid rigging, i.e. unlawful agreements between undertakings to raise prices or lower the quality of the goods or services offered in public tenders. Competition authorities may play a key role in preventing and tackling this anti-competitive practice, which costs governments and taxpayers billions of dollars every year.

Expert competition officials from the Greek, the Israeli, and the Swedish Competition Authorities, as well as from the Hungarian GVH and the OECD, will illustrate examples of enforcement and advocacy initiatives and tips for successful action, also in light of the OECD Guidelines for Fighting Bid Rigging in Public Procurement.
