Use the reverse auction platform to solicit IT commodities and a variety of non-complex commodities and simple services. Designed to drive down the total acquisitions cost and increase customer and taxpayer savings, the reverse auction platform can streamline procurement cycle time and provide spend data for prices paid information.
Federal agencies can buy IT commodities such as laptops, servers, and integrated support services faster and at lower prices through GSA. Users may save 15-37 percent when using the IT Commodity Buy BPA (compared to ordering off multiple award schedules). Contact our IT commodity team for acquisition assistance.

Lower prices, faster procurement
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.
The IT commodity program can take advantage of your reverse auction system 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.
Integrated support services such as maintenance and training
Additional support includes maintenance, warranties, installation, integration, and product training.
Better reporting and transactional data to help you manage your IT spend
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.
Secure, green products that help you meet mandates and directives
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.
