When taking part in a public tender, it is necessary to be aware of the fact that preparing an offer that meets the criteria specified in the terms of the contract is only half way to success.
Too little attention is paid to the formation of the offer and development of cooperation in the event of joint bidding in order to avoid exclusion from the tender and further negative consequences resulting from f. ex. provisions of competition law.
Antitrust regulations, especially ones concerning concluding agreements restricting competition, are enforced strictly in case of the collusive biddings.
It is important that entrepreneurs are aware of which actions should be taken and which behaviours to avoid in the course of tender procedure especially at the stage of negotiation with potential co-workers in order not to be exposed to the accusation of concluding an agreement restricting competition.
