Materials obtained by the NABU Detectives during a pre-trial investigation helped the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMCU) establish the facts of anticompetitive concerted actions among seven companies in a string of tenders for the supply of software. On Dec. 15, 2021, the AMCU fined the companies over UAH 105.3 million that will go to the state budget. The procurement in question covers the period of 2016-2019.

Tenders were announced by such state companies as Privatbank, Energoatom, Ukrgazvydobuvannia, Ukrzaliznytsia, the NBU, etc. The sanctions imposed on the exposed companies also include a 3-year ban on participating in public procurement.

The AMCU's decision is another example of effective cooperation between the National Bureau and the Antimonopoly Committee.
