Building firms 'rigged contracts'
According to the BBC....
"The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has accused 112 construction companies of rigging bids for contracts.
It said the firms colluded among themselves while bidding for contracts, leading to customers, such as local authorities, having to pay too much.
The regulator added that in a few cases firms entered into agreements whereby the successful tenderer would pay a sum of money to those that lost out.
It said 40 firms had admitted price fixing, and 37 had asked for leniency.
The cartel practice involved the use of false invoices.
Construction giants Balfour Beatty and Carillion are among those the OFT accuses of taking part. "
I wonder how many are/were involved in BSF bids?
