Tender for electronic surveillance system - UOKiK proceedings

< previous | next > 05.06.2018

Tender for electronic surveillance system - UOKiK proceedings
  • UOKiK will examine the tender for electronic surveillance system.
  • The Competition Authority will verify whether the tenderers engaged in illegal collusion.
  • The order's value is around 100 million PLN.

Electronic surveillance system allows for monitoring convicts who are serving their sentences outside prison.

“UOKiK initiated an investigation procedure to verify if the entrepreneurs who took part in the tender, organised by the Ministry of Justice, for modification and development of the current electronic surveillance system engaged in collusion” – says Marek Niechciał, the President of UOKiK.

Among others, the Competition Authority will examine whether the entrepreneurs participating as part of a consortium had the possibility to take part in the tender and execute the contract independently. This is a preliminary stage of UOKiK's activities, and at the moment, the proceedings are being conducted in a case, and not against the entrepreneurs.

What is important, UOKiK does not question, as a matter of principle, the possibility to form consortia for the purpose of tenders. However, according to the competition law, if the formation of a consortium is not necessary for participating in a tender, cooperation with other entities may result in restriction of competition.

If you are aware of any illegal agreements, please report them to UOKiK. Please contact us by phone: 22 55 60 500 or email us at [SCODE]c3lnbmFsaXN0YUB1b2tpay5nb3YucGw=[ECODE].You may find all the information on the whistle-blower programme on the following website:
