What is Bid Suppression?

Bid suppression is a form of supplier collusion. It occurs when a group of bidders, who may have been secretly 'cooperating' for some time, seek to exclude one or more companies from a bid process. The excluded suppliers are often newcomers to the market who are either offered a pay off in exchange for not submitting a bid or threatened to prevent them from bidding.
