Abstract:Sealed bidding is the preferred method for selling stumpage in many areas of the South. Industry timber procurement managers are concerned with both the success rate and the amount of overbid when assessing bidding performance. Analysis of 56 sealed-bid timber sales establishes local norms for these performance indicators in a 14-county area of south Alabama and northwestern Florida. Bidding strategies are examined and categorized as must-win, strongly competitive, weakly competitive, and noncompetitive. Factors affecting bidding performance are discussed.
