what is reverse auctioning
What is Reverse Auctioning?
  • Reverse auctions are “downward price” auctions in which suppliers continue to lower their prices until the auction closes.
  • Revolutionary pricing tool:
    • Competition will likely drive prices down
      • Savings to the Government
reverse auctioning
Reverse Auctioning
  • What makes a good candidate?
    • Auction items must be fully and accurately specified.
    • There must be two or more suppliers that agree to participate in the event
      • FAR 15.306(e)(3) prohibits any conduct that revels an offeror’s price without that offeror’s permission.
    • Analysis of the item to be reversed auctioned
      • i.e., “clear” specification, price margin associated, positive return on investment.
    • The solicitation should allow time for the training of suppliers and the configuration of the Dynamic Pricing Event.
reverse auction process
Reverse Auction Process
  • Suppliers submit technical proposals and initial price proposals
  • Suppliers are pre-screened and approved (Set the Competitive Range)
    • Only “invited suppliers can view or participate in auction”.
  • Offerors are anonymous to all except the buyer
    • Suppliers only see lowest offered prices, not competitor’s names
  • Evaluation criterion can be price or best value.
