Bid rigging means the agreement between tenderers who intentionally damage the contracting authority by not submitting competitive offers, which leads to an increasing price compared to the price that would be achieved in the situation where candidates compete with each other. The aim is to achieve better conditions for the winner of the tender procedure. Bid rigging generally includes elements of agreements on price fixing and agreements on market sharing. These agreements have a direct negative impact on public budgets.

Protection of Lenients and access to file before the Czech Antitrust Office

On 23 February 2012 the Regional Court in Brno (the "Court") delivered its judgement on an action against the decision of the Czech Antitrust Office (the "Office") in the case of screen manufacturers cartel (the "Judgement"). Even though the parties can still appeal against the Judgement it only summarizes the current decision-making practice of the European Commission (the "Commission") and the Court of Justice of the European Union (the "Court of Justice"), so there is no reason why the ruling should change in the future. Moreover, the amendment of Act No. 143/2001 Coll., on Protection of Economic Competition (the "Act") which is currently discussed before the Parliament more or less confirms the conclusions of the Judgement regarding the access to the file and defines certain rules of the Leniency procedure (the "Amendment") before the Office.
