Planning and Conducting Investigations
Series IV Investigational Techniques
Module IV-1: Planning and Conducting Investigations
This module presents the fundamental steps of conduting an investigation of potential competition law violations. The steps discussed include developing a theory of the case, identifying sources of information, interviewing witnesses, requesting documents and data, organizing and assessing evidence, and determining whether there is a violation.
Modules are available in several formats. Interactive format allows for navigation between scenes and contains links to relevant materials. Downloadable format is the same as interactive, but allows the reader to download the module to a local computer, which reduces uploading delays. You Tube format includes the same substantive content as other formats, but lacks the interactive features. Viewers are encouraged to use the format that works best for them.
As an aid to viewers, especially those whose first language is not English, transcripts are available for those who wish to follow along in written format.
