The Competition Authority recently investigated four companies for bid rigging in a tender organised by the Ministry of Defence for the procurement of uniforms and shoes in 2013.

In November 2015 the authority fined the companies a total of approximately €300,000 and prohibited them from participating as bidders in public procurement for the next 18 months.

Three of the companies Amm Immovables doo, Beteco doo and Sagoja doo were fined between 5.1% and 5.85% of their total annual turnover generated in 2012. The fourth company Advena line doo was not fined, as it terminated business in 2014.
