Viewing Bid Details

Opening a Bid

Click on the link under the 'Description' column to open the bid. You will then be taken into the bid. Information may include purchasing details, contact information, files, and much more.

After opening the bid, information regarding the bid including the title, posted date, due date, and any categorization codes used by the agency will be displayed above the details.

Please note: Information varies greatly between bids. Since we collect bids directly from the sources, each agency will format their bids differently. We do not manipulate this data, but we will provide as much information as possible that is available. This also means that if the bid contains an attachment, we do provide a link to the attachment.

The 'Details' tab will display any text provided by the agency regarding the bid. Common items here include a description of what they are looking to purchase, any required steps to submit a proposal, a main point of contact from the agency, and more.

The 'Files' tab will display any documents that the agency provided. These files can be downloaded to your computer and can be extremely helpful when deciding whether to submit a proposal.

The 'History' tab will display any amendments or changes to the particular bid. Reviewing this tab is recommended, as the agency may have provided new information, including updated due dates, details about the requested product or service, or files associated to the bid. Any new changes will be indicated in green, and outdated information will be displayed in red.

Tags, Notes, Tasks, and Lists

Towards the tops right of the bid, four buttons will be displayed. Click on either of these buttons to open a new menu.

In this new menu, you can choose to add this bid to a list, assign yourself a task, add any notes you need about the bid, and tag the bid if needed.
