Will the single payment amount (SPA) for the lead and non-lead items be the same for all winning suppliers in the same competitive bidding area (CBA)?

Yes, the SPAs for the lead item and all non-lead items in the CBA and product category combination (competition) will be the same for all contract suppliers. However, new for Round 2021, all bidders who are awarded a contract for a competition will be paid at the maximum winning bid amount for the competition. Please see the Lead Item Pricing fact sheet for additional information on the lead item pricing methodology and how the SPA for the lead and non-lead items in the product category will be determined.
