*On November 12, 2019, the Federal Business Opportunities website (also known as FBO.gov and FedBizOpps) was officially decommissioned. Beta.SAM.govexternal icon is now the authoritative source for “Contract Opportunities.”
Visit beta.SAM.govexternal icon to find current contract opportunities throughout the Federal Government. Beta.SAM.govexternal icon allows you to search thousands of active federal opportunities and register to be notified of newly posted opportunities in your industry. This website lists contract opportunities at CDC and other Federal Agencies.
This web site is the one-stop gateway to all open market federal business opportunities over $25,000. Actions being competed under GSA Schedule, under an agency blanket purchase agreement (BPA), or under an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract will not be found at beta.SAM.govexternal icon because those competitions are only available to existing contract or blanket purchase agreement (BPA) holders.

Reverse Auction Sites
Reverse auctions are one tool used by CDC to increase competition and reduce the cost of certain items. Reverse auctions differ from traditional auctions in that sellers compete against one another to provide the lowest price or highest-value offer to a buyer. The objective in using a reverse auction is to leverage competition, enabling agencies to obtain lower prices and reduce acquisition costs. This acquisition technique is typically used to purchase non-complex commodities and simple services and is designed to drive down the total cost of acquisitions and increase savings to customers and taxpayers.
GSA has an established web portal and software tool that CDC could use to conduct reverse auctions. Additional information about the tool and the reverse auction process can be found on the GSA websiteexternal icon.
There are also commercial reverse auction sites that CDC may utilize when deemed suitable.
