Abstract

This paper investigates the reasons why contracting authorities are discouraged from lodging actions for damages against tenderers engaged in bid rigging and other collusive practices and whether the new EU Damages Directive has managed to overcome these problems and bring advantages over the longstanding damages claims based on tort law. It will be suggested that the steps that the new EU Damages Directive has taken are not adequate to boost the number of actions for damages initiated by public contracting authorities. The paper therefore makes a number of recommendations and explores whether there are alternative remedies to the standard tort law litigation, which would enable contracting authorities to access compensation more easily.
