Awarding a Tender
When your tender deadline has passed, you will be able to score and award bids. You can do this either by clicking the "awarding" link in the message on screen, or by following the "View" link under the bids count on the right.
You'll be taken to a screen detailing how many bids there are per lot. Click on each lot to score the bids.
For each bid you can award a score to the answers to the questions supplied. These scores will be aggregated for later reference when you award your lots.
When every bid has been scored, you can use the "Lot Awarding" tab to make a decision on who to award the tender to based on the final scoring and bid value. You can also review each bid by clicking on the relevent button.
Once you've decided who to award your lots to (you don't have to award lot is not one meets your award criteria), you can click on the "Complete Tender Awarding Process" to complete the process.
You will be asked to confirm that your choices are correct, and if you go ahead, the awarded bidders will be informed via email, and will be passed your contact details to initiate communications with you.
