Glossary of procurement terminology, A guide for suppliers, Published by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames in April 2012, suggests that collusion is: ‘A fraudulent arrangement between two or more parties whereby prices or service requirements are manipulated to get round competitive tendering.’
As part of a selective tendering process, tenderers may be required to complete a ‘Declaration of Non-Collusion’ (sometimes referred to as a ‘Declaration of Non-Collusion Form’ or a ‘Certificate of Non-Collusion’). This is intended to prevent corruption in the tender process by requiring a declaration from the tenderer that they have not colluded with any other party in the preparation of their tender.
NB The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) Glossary of procurement terms, defines collusion as: ‘Where two or more potential suppliers (or the purchaser and one or more suppliers) secretly co-operate to undermine the competitiveness of a tender process.’
