The foundation of public procurement is fair and open competition.
Free and open competition in government procurement, grant and program funding benefits taxpayers by ensuring lower prices as well as new and better products. Antitrust laws promote competition. Bid rigging and price fixing are examples of prohibited business practices. It is important for procurement officers to learn about the existence and importance of antitrust laws, and understand their role in antitrust enforcement.
This is a rare opportunity to hear from speakers Assistant Chief Daniel Glad and Trial Attorney Sandra Talbott from the Antitrust Division U.S. Department of Justice as they present on competition and antitrust laws.
