Bi-Weekly Reverse Auction Training Scheduled for March 5 Cancelled.

GSA is scheduled to put into production a major Reverse Auction system enhancement the week of March 17, 2014.  We are in the process of updating our training material to include screen shots and instructions that include the enhancement's added functionality.  In order not to train our customers and vendors on navigation that will soon change, GSA will forego training on March 5 and offer training on the newly enhanced system bi-weekly beginning March 19th.

The enhanced functionality will allow the buyer to amend auctions.  Additionally the bid logic has been changed so that buyers no longer enter starting bids. The starting bid will now be entered by the vendors.  Vendors will also have the ability to enter a flat bid as their starting bid and a (optional) proxy bid which would be the lowest price they are willing to sell the line item at.  Bids higher than the apparent low will now be permitted to allow a vendor's bid to be considered in case the low bid ends up being technically unacceptable.

Several other enhancements are also included that will make using the GSA Reverse Auction Platform more user friendly and produce better results for all users.

Look forward to seeing everyone in training starting on the 19th!  As always, if your company or procurement organization would like to have closed group training, please comment here or send a request to reverseauctions@gsa.gov.

Thank you!!!

The Reverse Auction Team
