As part of the kick-off of Fraud Prevention Month it seems, the Competition Bureau has issued an updated pamphlet for businesses on bid-rigging. The Bureau’s new Bid-rigging pamphlet discusses the criminal bid-rigging offences under the Competition Act (section 47), provides some tips to detect and prevent common types of bid-rigging offences (e.g., cover bidding, bid suppression, bid rotation and market division), gives a brief overview of the Bureau’s Immunity and Leniency Programs and bid-rigging penalties. The Bureau’s new pamphlet also includes other bid-rigging related resources, including its multi-media presentation: Bid-Rigging: Awareness and Prevention.
