For years, the federal acquisition community has been wishing for simpler access to the kind of information they need to make smarter purchases and save taxpayers dollars.
Now, GSA’s new “eBuy Open” is delivering that critical market research through an easy to use interactive web platform designed with their needs in mind.
The eBuy Open tool helps customers leverage best practices and lessons-learned from across the federal acquisition community. According to GSA, eBuy Open helps buyers quickly search open, closed, and canceled eBuy Requests for Quotes (RFQs) from FY14 forward, showing which agencies are requesting what products and services from GSA Schedules. Digging deeper unearths other valuable information, such as how other buyers draft their documents to get the best quotes from industry, and when specific products and services are purchased. Use of the the tool can support market research and the search for acquisition examples.
