Abstract: This thesis is a case study examining Czech public procurement in medical
machinery industry. It proposes and applies several practical methods for
identifying risk of bid rigging, such as: frequency analysis of participation of
the same small groups of rms, analyzing ownership structure of participating
rms and frequency analysis of systematically excluded bids of rms. Results
include presence of cases of the same small groups of rms which bid more frequently
together with no other competitors. Main contribution of the work lays
in outlining some analytical possibilities for practical detection of bid rigging
risk.
