SDE concerned with collusion in the preparation for 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games
One of the main domestic criticism in relation to the World Cup voices the fears that the necessary improvements will cost more than the market price – actually, this seems to be a self–fulfilling prophecy, since the delays in the planning are leading to delays in the start-up of the multimillion stadiums to be built.
In order to minmize such risks, the Secretariat of Economic Law (SDE) and the government of the State of Rio de Janeiro are jointly training 70 civil servants in charge of the public bids for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. The training is part of the “jogando limpo” program launched in June 2010 with the purpose of suggesting the committees responsible for the public biddings how to increase competition as well as how to detect cartels.
