NCMA Huntsville Sponsorship

NCMA Sponsorship Contest Announcement
Have you ever inquired to see if your company would like to be a sponsor of the Huntsville Chapter of NCMA? For as little as a one-time payment of $80, a small business can participate at the Bronze Sponsor Level for the entire year. Thus, sponsorship isn't really out of reach for any company!

We have one of the largest NCMA chapters with approximately 700 local members who are employed in the contract management field. For over 50 years the NCMA Huntsville Chapter has provided various training, seminars, and programs to the procurement and contract professionals of Huntsville. This has allowed members to enhance their knowledge in the procurement and contracting profession and provide a high standard of job performance. The NCMA Huntsville Chapter is dedicated to serving the procurement and contracting professional through professional growth, leadership, and educational advancement.

For the month of March, we would like to have a sponsorship contest for our members! If you provide a new supporting partner at any level, your name will be entered into a contest to receive a free admission ticket to the upcoming educational seminar in April. For more information on various sponsorship opportunities, here is a link to the sponsorship benefit page Supporting Sponsors Take Away.

GSA Reverse Auction (RA) Platform
GSA Reverse Auction Platform
"Does your business sell products or simple services?"
January 2016


The GSA Reverse Auction (RA) platform provides an opportunity to help grow your business through an efficient, effective, and transparent system that federal, state, and local agencies use to procure products and simple services. In fact, in fiscal year 2015, 27 agencies awarded a total of $98.9 million through the GSA RA platform and more growth is projected for future years. Further, more than 91 percent of all of those awards were made to small businesses.

Multiple Bids, Multiple Opportunities

In a reverse auction the buyer creates a live auction that solicits sellers for products or services. Sellers can then place a bid or multiple-bids to deliver those products or perform the services. Here are some key features:
  • Sellers can bid on multiple auctions at once and place multiple bids before an auction closes.
  • Sellers can view real-time pricing as their competitors' bids are displayed. No business proprietary information is released to competitors. Only the bid price alongside generic names are displayed for bidders to view (i.e., Bidder #1 Price $100,000, Bidder #2 Price $125,000).

Register for GSA RA platform and Take a Test Drive

To gain access to the multiple opportunities in the GSA RA platform Register Here. Your firm will receive new auction notifications based on the NAICS codes selected at the time of registration. GSA encourages buyers and sellers to learn more about the GSA RA platform by taking a test drive at the Test Drive Demo.
