Reverse Auction Training on Thursday, February 23, 2017

GSA will be hosting two sessions of Reverse Auction Training on Thursday, February 23, 2017. 

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is the federal government’s primary procurement agency and is a leader in electronic commerce initiatives. Through its Information Technology Category (ITC), GSA provides its constituents with a multitude of eTools to help meet a variety of procurement needs. One of these eTools is the GSA Reverse Auction Platform that simplifies the auction creations process and encourages vendor participation through placing competitive bids. Government buyers can create auctions by uploading line items via a spreadsheet and vendors can bid on all line items from a single page. GSA Reverse Auctions was developed by the Federal Government with government contracting officers in mind and is managed by the GSA Reverse Auction Program (GSARA). GSA Reverse Auction system showcases GSA and Veterans Affairs (VA) Federal Supply Schedules and Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) Vehicles.


Attend this FREE training course to learn more about the exciting features including Open Market auctions, and gain valuable knowledge on the GSA Reverse Auction Platform designed to obtain quotes and agency transaction (prices paid)  data.
