Bid Rigging and Competitive Negotiations: A Transnational Perspective on Fighting Corruption

Many countries, including Canada and the European member states, continue to experience serious problems with bid rigging. But that form of corruption is relatively rare in the U.S. federal system, which now relies heavily on competitive negotiations (sometimes called "competitive dialogue" internationally). In this session, Canadian, European and U.S. lawyers will discuss developments in their respective jurisdictions, and new strategies that governments are taking to advance procurement law and policy.
