What Are We Trying to Accomplish?
Once your suppliers start submitting quotes you can begin to decide which quotes you want to reject and ultimately which quote you want to accept. You can either choose individual bids on items from the Detailed Comparison section or you can choose to Accept Entire Bid or Reject Entire Bid from the Supplier Submissions section. Once you accept an entire bid, all other bids will automatically be rejected.
How Do I Do It?
1) Click the Accept Entire Bid button next to the bid you want to award
2) Provide a message to the awarded supplier
3) Click the Award button
Once you award your supplier they will receive an email letting them know their bid was accepted. All other suppliers that submitted bids will be notified that their entire bid was rejected.
Once a bid has been awarded, the status will switch from Published to Awarded
Once a bid is awarded, click View Award Submission to review the submission
