Federal News Radio – GSA to close down reverse auction platform after 5 years

“GSA has made the difficult decision to decommission our Reverse Auctions (RA) platform. Unfortunately, the platform did not prove to be financially viable,” Erv Koehler, the acting deputy commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service, wrote in a note to GSA agency customers and industry partners on Aug. 7. “Our focus now is to ensure the platform is shut down in an orderly way. As such system operations will conclude at the end of Fiscal Year 2018, which means the RA platform will not be available for either the creation or management of auctions after Sept. 30, 2018. Auctions with end dates after Oct. 1, will be allowed to conclude as scheduled. GSA will maintain RA system access for users through Dec. 31, allowing for the retrieval of auction-related documents.”

“…Our customer service directors are working with current RA vendors and customers to find the GSA tools, platforms and programs that best meet their specific acquisition needs.” Listen to the podcast here.
