    Nous analysons le problème de la formation d'une entente entre soumissionnaires à un appel d'offres au premier prix confrontés au risque d'être détecté. Considérant qu'une entente peut être détectée dès qu'un offreur est dénoncé, notre objectif est de déterminer l'influence de ce risque sur la taille d'équilibre de l'entente. Deux critères de rationalité individuelle sont retenus. Premièrement, nous considérons qu'un offreur accepte d'entrer dans l'entente si et seulement son profit espéré est supérieur à celui qu'il aurait en restant en dehors. Lorsque le risque de dénonciation est trop important, nous montrons qu'aucune coalition ne peut se former. Considérant ensuite qu'un offreur accepte de participer à l'entente dès qu'il obtient un profit espéré supérieur à celui qu'il aurait en l'absence de toute coalition, nous montrons qu'une entente ne peut se former que si elle comprend un minimum d'offreurs lorsque le risque de dénonciation est élevé.
