H.R.2751 or the Commonsense Construction Contracting Act of 2013 is a bill to prohibit the use of a reverse auction procurement for construction contracts when the contract is a size where a small business would be qualified to bid. A reverse auction is when there is an anonymous online bid to complete a contract, venders will continue to offer lower priced bids until the reverse auction closes at which point the lowest bid will win the contract.
