The Czech NCA fined the Prague Public Transit Company (Dopravní podnik Praha – DPP) for infringing the competition rules in connection with a public tender procedure. More specifically, the Prague Public Transit Company was fined CZK 100,000 (approx. EUR 4,000) for not excluding one of the participants in its tenders, namely CENTR GROUP, despite the fact that the company had not complied with the tender provisions, failing to secure a valid bank guarantee for the whole term of the tender proceedings.

The Czech NCA held that, through its failure to act, the Prague Public Transit Company had significantly influenced the selection of the most appropriate offer by awarding the tender to CENTR GROUP.
