Analysis of international practices and results obtained for protecting competition policy, public procurement, detection, and prevention of agreed actions are significant for the National Competition Agency.

Numerous recommendations have been issued. Our goal is not to impose unsubstantiated, discriminatory, and inconsistent requirements for the participants in the tenders by the procuring organizations.
