Once done, check out this video to show you how the e-Auction works.

PROGRESSING THROUGH AN EVENT

  • Navigating a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire

    Upon a successful invitation and acceptance to an Event, you will be able to work your way through the various areas within it. The first hurdle could be a pre-Qualification Questionnaire. This is a gateway that you need to pass to see the rest of the event, just to ensure that you do have a realistic chance of winning the event.

  • Navigating a normal questionnaire

    Upon a successful completion of a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire, you may progress to the next step, which could be a normal questionnaire in the form of a survey of a Request for Information.

  • Uploading a bid

  • Placing bids in an advanced lot

    This tutorial explains how you place bids in an advanced lot. It shows how to place bids during a qualification bid process and RFQ directly into the system or via excel. It also shows how to bid at detail and lot level during an auction and how to upload detail after the auction has finished if you bid at lot level.

  • Using the Document tab

    After you have been let into the event you will be able to see the Document tab. This tab will let you download documents that have been uploaded by the host and here you can also upload your own documents.

  • Using the Message Board

    During the Event, you shall most likely wish to ask the Host questions about it. The Message Board is a fantastic way to go about this as everything is in one place for you, including all the previous questions you asked and the corresponding answers. This ensures that you receive all the same information as everyone else, as the Host can communicate to everyone in such an efficient manner. This tutorial explains how to use the Message Board service.

  • Taking part in a Ranked eAuction

    If you have taken part in an RFQ which has progressed to an e-Auction or your Qualification Bids have been successful then you shall most likely be invited to take part in the final activity; the Online Negotiation Event or e-Auction. During the e-Auction, you shall be given feedback as to the competitiveness of your bid in real time; something you don’t get during a traditional negotiation. We appreciate this can sometimes be a stressful situation, so to give yourselves the maximum preparation, please take a look through this tutorial in order to feel comfortable with what you are doing on the day.

  • Bidding in a Japanese eAuction

    This tutorial shows you how to bid in a Japanese auction. In a Japanese auction, you do not see your position, but you will need to either accept or decline the ‘current bid’ for each Lot within a given time limit. After which, if you have accepted the ‘current bid’ for a Lot, you will proceed to the next round where you will be asked the same question. The auction continues until you can no longer bid for any lot.

  • Using bid template

    This tutorial shows you how to bid using a bid template. A bid template allows you to use Excel to fill out your bids. It is useful on events with a large number of lots and can be used during Qualification or RFQ stage.
