Building the capacity of the competition authority in Spain

The Commission provided support to the Spanish competition authority to help detect market irregularities and potential infringements to competition rules. The project, launched at the end of 2019, was aimed at developing tools for the detection of collusion and other anticompetitive practices in public tenders, analysing algorithm-generated prices as well as their implications for competition, using open source intelligence techniques and improving the existing leniency programme.
