House to Consider Prohibiting Construction Reverse Auctions 

AGC-Backed Bill Clears Committee
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) introduced the AGC-backed bill, Construction Consensus Procurement Improvement Act, to limit federal agencies from procuring construction services through reverse auctions. In addition to addressing reverse auctions, this legislation reforms design-build procurement by reasonably limiting the second-step design-build shortlist. On Thursday, the bill easily cleared the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and it now moves to the House of Representatives for a floor vote.
AGC supports commonsense procurement reform that improves the delivery of federal construction services and benefits the government, taxpayers, small businesses, and the entire construction industry. AGC firmly believes reform of the federal procurement process should recognize construction’s unique melding of industry sectors while ensuring the government is using the most cost-effective method of procurement.
