Noncompetitive Bid

One of two bidding processes for buying Treasury securities and some other debt securities, in which the investor agrees to purchase a certain number of securities at the average price of all competitive bids over a given time. The noncompetitive bid process allows smaller investors to buy Treasury securities in a market that would otherwise be dominated by wealthy institutional investors. The minimum price in a noncompetitive bid is $10,000.
