Abstract: This thesis analyzes the decision making of the Czech Office for the Protection of
Competition in public procurement cases. It deals with both procurement oversight and the
underlying incentives of the participants of proceedings. The aim of this thesis is to show the
motivation of participants of proceedings is various and it often differs from the initial
purpose of the oversight. The decisions of the Office and the length of proceeding before the
Office play an important role in the incentives of participants.
First, the author summarizes the legislative framework of the proceeding before the
Office with emphasis on economically important aspects. Then he performs the analysis of
the decisions. The results show that the length of proceeding before the Office is quite long
and both contracting authorities and petitioners respond to this fact. The contracting
authorities tend to cancel the procurement or make a deal even during the proceeding, on
the other hand some the petitioners submit frivolous proposals. In addition the fines
imposed by the Office are rather on lower boundary.
