Competitive biddingA securities offering process in which securities firms submit competing bids to the issuer for the securities the issuer wishes to sell.
Usually refers to characteristics that permit a firm to compete effectively with other firms due to low cost or superior technology, perhaps internationally. When applied to nations, instead of firms, the word has a mercantilist connotation.
Used alone, this usually means perfectly competitive. Contrasts with imperfectly competitive.
