Invitation to Bid Overview

Invitation to Bid documents are used to send general information about a project to a large number of potential vendors.

Invitation to Bid documents usually fit into one of two workflows:

  1. The Invitation to Bid document (through an Attachment or Transmittal template printout) and its attached files are routed via e-mail, fax, or hard copy to a number of vendors.
  2. The Invitation to Bid document is placed on the Plan Room Dashboard, and vendors are given the login ID and password necessary to access it and any other related documents, such as Drawings.
