Leaking Bid Information

Bid information may be leaked for a number of reasons. It may be for financial benefit or for personal reasons. For example, a disaffected employee at a suppliers may leak bid information to a competitor to give them an unfair advantage on the understanding that they will benefit personally or professionally. Alternatively, an employee may have a friend or relative working for a competitor and intentionally or unintentionally let slip bid information.

Train your employees on identifying the red flags and ensuring compliance with competition laws.

Transparency in the bidding process is very important for trust and for making sure you have clearly stayed on the right side of competition law. The key principle is making sure there is open, fair competition. This means making sure the reasons for unsuccessful bids are communicated and suppliers are chosen fairly.

Bid information is supposed to be confidential but in practice, it can sometimes be leaked. This can be unintentional, such as in the case of a cyber attack or accidental sharing of information, or intentional, such as a competitor asking an employee to sell sensitive information. Every step needs to be taken to keep company information safe.

Ethical purchasing processes are impartial and fair, with integrity displayed by all parties. Ensuring bids are considered in an unbiased way is very important and upholds competition law. All bids should represent the best prices and services the supplier can offer and competitors should not be involved in the process in any unfair way.
