Creating a base project using the new PennBid platform can be done in just a few minutes. Follow along with this step-by-step tutorial to get started!
Public Files are placed on the portal and available for anyone to download. If you are looking to upload a Public File while also notifying vendors, you can do both at the same time by issuing a Public Notice.
One of the most critical aspects of setting up and running a project in PennBid is specifying which documents and information you want the vendor to submit to you. This is managed in the Requested Information section.
The Questionnaires feature in PennBid allows for a structured way to receive vendor responses for a large number of criteria while displaying the Vendor's responses side-by-side.
Bid Tables allow a Buyer to quickly solicit and evaluate projects with multiple bid items. The module also allows the ability to organize items into Baskets, analyze price spread among Vendors, and quickly generate order lists.
Multi-Category Decision (MCD) projects, previously called multi-prime bids, allow you to run bids that require multiple decisions to be made based on the Vendors' submissions.
