    Envelops in Sourcing

    Vijay Vedula Apprentice

      Hi,

       

      We have created an RFP event with 3 envelops - Technical, Commercial and Pricing. There are target grades set up in each envelop and suppliers falling below the target grade are considered disqualified for the next envelop.

      Currently system displays all the suppliers before proceeding to the next envelop. Is it possible so that system displays only those suppliers who have met the target grades? Or at least some way to identify who have fallen short of the target grades?

       

      As long as all the suppliers are displayed, onus lies on the event owner to correctly and very carefully select the suppliers. And this leaves lot of scope for error. If a supplier is checked or unchecked by mistake, it makes a big difference in Vendor Identification

       

      Please let me know if there is any workaround to overcome the issue?

       

      Thanks

      Vijay

          Vijay, Envelope bidding doesn't operate automatically like you are seeking. It requires the buyer to review, then select whose next envelope should be opened or not. The idea is to mimic the paper process of envelope bidding. What you are seeking would be a nice enhancement, please submit that for future consideration. David

            Thank You David for the clarification. We shall go ahead with ER. Wondering if any customization is possible like an exclamation mark for the suppliers below target grades. So that buyer can identify from the list of displayed suppliers.
