Reverse Auction

Reverse Auction

A reverse auction is referred to as a reverse auction because rather than buyers bidding for an item for sale and the item going to the highest bidder as in standard auctions, buyers in reverse auctions post indications of interest and sellers bid to win the auction and the lowest bid wins. Reverse auctions are used in a wide range of goods and services procurement contests by public and private sector entities.
