RFP & Bid Notice Creation

Automatically notify your suppliers of bid opportunities that match their exact qualifications.

RFP & Bid Notice Creation

It's been called the 5-minute solicitation, then one of our customers corrected us in calling it the 2-minute solicitation. Simplify your bid opportunity publishing using the RFP and Bid Notice Creation feature, part of the complete mdf commerce Strategic Sourcing offering. The easy-to-use Notice Creation Wizard helps buyers create bid notifications in only a few clicks. Instantly send opportunity notices to some or all of your supplier pool according to project requirements. Solicitations and any corresponding documents are published and distributed electronically to all eligible suppliers. RFP and bid notifications can be sent to suppliers by qualification, location, standard classification codes, or on a per-item basis, allowing for maximum flexibility when publishing solicitations.

RFP and Bid Notice Creation can be used in tandem with the Strategic Sourcing RFP Contractor Rotation and Vendor Qualification Documents features to ensure that only qualified suppliers have an opportunity to bid. RFP and Bid Notice Creation can be part of your configurable and collaborative approval workflows providing an additional layer of security to the procurement cycle.

I can actually go through the Purchasing System, post the solicitation, then send out to vendors in much less time than I can do through my own website. It’s a blessing for us. The whole process takes less than five minutes.
