Lotusprocure.in e-tendering bidder system has different modules and components. These modules are the site administrator section, Buyer’s section (Employer), bidder’s section (All interested contractor or supplier) and a public view section.
Role in each module is decided for a component for certain extent. Site Administrator can register buyer or bidder and has an own password but can’t access bidding process. A buyer can publish or download or award a tender and to complete this process buyer needs a password. But a buyer can’t access to bidders page. A bidder can submit or modify a submitted bid and needs a password to accomplish these tasks. A bidder can’t access buyers page or not able to delete a bid. The general viewer can only view tenders but not able to access the any of the parts of the bidding process. General viewers don’t require any password to check tenders on the website.
Each of the modules facilitates certain tasks. In the buyer’s section buyer can offer tender notice and offer bid information to the supplier. Here, the all amendments are accomplished by the buyer. Once the Tender notice has generated it is viewable in bidder section. In Bidder section, now the bidder can bid on that tender and all the information is accessible to the bidder which is provided by the buyer. If Bidder needs to change his bid, he can modify, substitute or withdraw the bid any time before the period of bidding process ends. After the completion of a bidding process, bid evaluation is started. In bid evaluation process, the acquired bid is evaluated to award the tender. Once the winning bid is evaluated, buyer generates a notice to the successful bidder.
