“The Romanian Competition Council (the “RCC”) recently published new guidelines on detecting and preventing anti-competitive practices in public procurement procedures (the “Guidelines”).
The Guidelines provide valuable insight into what the RCC considers relevant signs of bid rigging […] The Guidelines further analyse market traits (e.g. limited numbers of bidders, homogeneous products, market shares and costs symmetry, transparency of the market etc.) and features of the public authorities’ planning procedures (e.g. restrictive qualification and selection criteria, allowing communication between bidders etc) which may favour anticompetitive practices within public tenders.”
