Copenhagen Economics and the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority invite to an inspiring meeting regarding the use of economic methods when screening for cartels in public procurement.
The state and other authorities spend billions on public procurements every year, and hence they are – just as well as consumers and private companies – exposed to cartels.
This has lead to an increased focus on using economic methods to screen for suspicious behavior, and in 2013 the Swedish Competition Authority launched a pilot project on the subject. Joseph Ålander from the Swedish Competition Authority will share their experiences, including strengths and weaknesses with the economic screening methods.
The meeting is the third event within the Competition Economic Forum; a semi-annual networking event for competition economists.
It takes place 26 November at Copenhagen Economics’ premises in Copenhagen.
Participation is free of charge but requires registration to email@example.com no later than 24 November.
