Sorting the List of Auctions and Opportunities

There might be dozens or even hundreds of auctions and opportunities listed on the All Auctions and Opportunities page, so the system enables you to sort your auctions and opportunities based on any of the columns that display on the All Auctions and Opportunities page (see above).

Note

The default sorting method is by issue date.

To sort your list of auctions and opportunities based on the criterion of a specific column, click the column heading. Click once to sort the list of auctions and opportunities by that criteria, in ascending (A-Z) order; click twice to sort the list of auctions and opportunities by that criteria, in descending (Z-A) order.

If you want to sort your list of auctions and opportunities based on issuing agency, beginning with Agency A and ending with Agency Z, click the Agency column heading once.

If you want to sort your list of auctions and opportunities based on the date responses are due, beginning with those that are due at the latest date, click the Response Due Date column heading twice.
