Abstract

Bid-rigging in public procurement is a particularly serious infringement of competition law. New economic and algorithmic tools can effectively complement the existing enforcement mechanisms to ensure that a virtuous circle of detection, enforcement and compliance is triggered. This short paper sets out a few propositions for further reflection and research in this area.

Keywords: antitrust, bid-rigging, public procurement, enforcement
