The CITY OF OXFORD PURCHASING OFFICE reserves the right to utilize “Anti-Sniping” for reverse auctions if they choose to do so.
The purpose of the Anti-Sniping tool is to assure all vendors have an opportunity to enter a bid regardless of the time a competing vendor places a bid. This prevents a last second bid to be the winner of the reverse auction which is known as bid sniping. Anti-Sniping is a feature that is determined by the agency at the time of creation of the reverse auction. If the agency determines to utilize the Anti- Sniping tool, the reverse auction end time is automatically extended by five (5) minutes if a bid is entered in the last five (5) minutes of the reverse auction. The reverse auction continues to auto extend as many times as a bid is placed in the last five (5) minutes
