Abstract

This talk explores how we developed useful insights for a common value auction problem without a clear, closed-form analytical solution. As procurement auctions increasingly move to digital platforms, more data and information is available (or can be made available) to bidders. Despite this trend, relatively little is known about the impact of information asymmetries in these settings. In a design that mirrors real construction auctions, our laboratory experiment tests the impact of two asymmetries and finds that a better understanding of estimate precision decreases bidder profit, counter to our expectation. The implication from our realistic setting – that reduced uncertainty may not help – raises important questions about the degree of transparency that is optimal in procurement auctions.
