On 7 January 2018 the Antimonopoly Office of the Slovak Republic, the Division of Cartels, (hereafter "the Office") initiated based on its own initiative the administrative proceedings in the matter of a possible agreement restricting competition according to Art. 4 of the Act on Protection of Competition (hereafter "the Act") concluded between undertakings in relation to contract for the realization of construction works.
 
On the basis of investigation conducted, the Office obtained documentation and information indicating that the three undertakings coordinated their procedure during public procurement process by submitting bids in the public procurement for the realization of construction and reconstruction works at a rehabilitation facility and facility for retirees. The project was funded by the European Structural and Investment Funds.
 
The initiation of the administrative proceedings does not imply that the party to the proceedings has infringed competition rules, nor does it prejudge the conclusions that the Office may come to in its decision.
