Through its Auctions Division (AD) and in consultation with WTB, MB, and WCB, OEA serves as the Commission's principal resource with regard to all auction design and implementation issues. AD plans, designs, and conducts all FCC spectrum auctions, including auctions of flexible use licenses in various bands, including the 600 MHz and 700 MHz Bands, Advanced Wireless Services (AWS), and upper microwave bands, and construction permits for over-the-air television and radio services. AD also implements the Commission’s incentive auction authority to repurpose spectrum for new uses and conducts reverse auctions to distribute universal service support for fixed and mobile broadband services. AD is responsible for assuring that all of the Commission’s auction processes are fair and transparent.  In planning for and conducting auctions, AD collaborates with the Bureaus responsible for regulating and licensing the items to be offered at auction.
