FedConnect accounts are free to create, and vendors/contractors can bid on and respond to various types of opportunities completely free. Vendors/contractors are only required to pay a small fee if they are awarded a contract or order from a Reverse Auction, and the processing fee is a percentage of the money that is awarded from the Agency. All other types of opportunities do not charge a fee.
Additional information regarding Reverse Auctions and the fee involved can be found in the FedConnect: Ready, Set, Go! Tutorial guide located on the FedConnect home page.
