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).
