Providing value for taxpayer dollars through competition
Competition Bureau provides advice on protecting competition in public procurement
February 5, 2021 - GATINEAU, QC - Competition Bureau
As governments across Canada enact stimulus measures in support of the country’s economic recovery, competition in public procurement is becoming increasingly important.
If you’re involved in government procurement, you know there are many rules in place to protect the integrity of public spending. You may be aware of laws against anticompetitive behaviour, but do you know what to watch out for in your calls for tender?
The latest edition of the Competition Bureau’s Competition Advocate — “Competitive bidding processes in the public sector: Procuring good value for taxpayer money” — provides best practices for ensuring competitive government procurement processes and highlights common warning signs of bid-rigging.
Pro-competition policies will ensure that our rebuilt economy is one where competition drives lower prices, improved productivity, and increased levels of innovation to the benefit of all Canadians.
Canadians expect value for their public funds. Competitive procurement processes are more important than ever as governments begin to invest in Canada’s economic recovery.
The Competition Bureau offers a range of tools and tips for detecting, preventing and reporting bid-rigging.
Procurement officials wishing to learn more about bid-rigging awareness are invited to contact the Competition Bureau for assistance.
