An e-Auction is a procurement tool using web-based software that allows suppliers to bid online for the opportunity to win a contract. Suppliers compete with each other by reducing the cost of their goods or services in order to win the business being offered by the buyer. Successful e-auctions allow buying organisations to identify the lowest sustainable prices/best value that suppliers are willing to offer for their goods or services.

e-Auctions can be used to determine the true market price for the goods or services being contracted. Buyers have been able to make significant savings of well over 20% against previous prices.
