Interplay between competition law and public procurement law
Lefkothea Nteka, partner, head of our Antitrust & Competition practice, discussed the interplay between competition law and public procurement law, in the 5th International Conference on Competition Law & Policy.
Lefkothea addressed in particular, how procurement remedies such as the debarment mechanism and self-cleaning measures interfere with competition law enforcement against bid-rigging practices and affect the effectiveness of the leniency programme and settlement proceedings. She referred extensively to the European Commission’s Notice on tools to fight collusion in public procurement and on guidance on how to apply the related exclusion ground of March 2021, as well as to relevant national case law.
Lambadarios Law Firm sponsored the event, organized by Nomiki Bibliothiki, under the auspices of the Hellenic Competition Commission and supported by the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises.
