It is natural that the Competition Authority cooperates with other authorities in Sweden and abroad to identify and prevent, bid-rigging cartels. This was stressed by the Swedish Competition Authority’s Director-General Dan Sjöblom, when he spoke at the European Competition Day Conference in Riga.
In his speech, Dan Sjöblom mentioned the already established cooperation between the Swedish Competition Authority and the Swedish National Anti-Corruption Unit, which allows the exchange of certain anonymized information.
Dan Sjöblom also mentioned a request to receive funding from the EU for an international project together with Italian and the Dutch authorities. If the project comes about it will aim at developing methodologies and tools to identify corruption and collusion in procurement procedures.
