GSA Reverse Auction

GSA Reverse Auction

GSA Reverse Auction is a General Services Administration (GSA) managed  government-owned reverse auction platform, ReverseAuctions.gsa.gov for federal, state and local agency use. The GSA Reverse Auction is an efficient and cost effective platform designed to drive down the total cost of acquisitions and increase savings to customers and taxpayers.

Benefits

We have medium- and long-term buying programs with the goal of reducing prices in the government IT marketplace by leveraging bulk purchasing opportunities. We expect over $1 Billion in sales over the next five years.

IT Commodities

The IT commodity program streamlines your operations and reduces overall contracting costs by aggregating the government's demand for IT. By streamlining the modification process, new products can be added in as little as 24 to 48 hours.

Customers can take advantage of GSA's Reverse Auctions to bid down the price of IT commodities. The blanket purchase agreements (BPAs) also feature automatic tiered volume discounts, additional customer-negotiated discounts, and the ability for vendors to provide discounts on the spot.

Additional support includes maintenance, warranties, installation, integration, and product training.

When you use the IT commodity program, you get quarterly usage reports and Level III data, as well as monthly performance metrics reports and customer surveys.

The IT commodity program also meets the requirements of sustainable purchasing, such as eWaste credits and rebates and lifecycle management. Some products are Energy Star and EPEAT-certified.
