req for bid

 

The Request for Bid is used to get the lowest cost amongst several Vendors who all carry the goods or services you are looking to purchase for your Client.  A Purchase Order must first be created for the Component(s) in question.  Oftentimes, a "To be Determined" Vendor will be initially assigned to the Components to create the Purchase Order.  Once you receive estimates from your Vendors, the Components can be edited, the Vendor and estimated Costs changed so that the Purchase Order can then be updated with the costs from the accepted Vendor.
