He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in English from UAH and his PhD in medieval literature from Florida State University. He was a professor for several years before pursuing graduate studies in business administration. For the majority of his professional career, he worked as a contracts administrator for TBE. Survivors include his wife, Mary Toland Chaffee; two children, Sarah Ruth Chaffee and Joseph Raymond Chaffee; two sisters, Nonda Sloan and Cecilia Bruton (Roy); one brother, Guy Chaffee (Sharon); seven nieces and four nephews; seven great-nieces and seven grand-nephews; and numerous cousins. Visitation and Prayer Service will be held Sunday from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Holy Spirit Catholic Church.

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

GSA encourages buyers and sellers to learn more about the GSA RA platform by taking a test drive at the Test Drive Demo.
