GSA eBuy Heats Up

GSA eBuy heats up as federal buyers release over $180 Billion in opportunities before September fiscal year end. According to Dave Lowe, CEO of isiFederal QuikFuse eBuy monitoring is showing a steady increase of eBuy RFQs and RFIs.  "Right now we are in the beginning stages of year end activities" says Lowe, "we expect to see QuikFuse sending over 10,000 opportunities a week by the time we hit mid August."

isiFederal uses QuikFuse to monitor GSA eBuy for several clients and has recently released its latest version which can deliver RFQs and RFIs via email within seconds of it appearing on a GSA schedule holder's eBuy account.  This can provide a significant advantage over competitors who wait for the summary email and then have to log into eBuy.  The QuikFuse notification engine delivers the email with all the attachments (up to 25MB) so customers can quickly see whether the opportunity meets their capabilities.

Irrespective of whether you use QuikFuse or log into GSA eBuy directly, expect a high volume of opportunities to flow through the eBuy system.  Other expectations include shrinking turn-arounds and shortlisted oppoprtunities that are only competed between two or three GSA schedule holders.  So, monitor eBuy regularly and make sure you stay on your toes... The next 3 months will be a very busy time on GSA eBuy.
