Viewing Bids for Posted Solicitations in eVP

Procurement Users (PU) who have publicly posted a solicitation in the electronic Vendor Portal (eVP) are able to monitor which vendors have submitted a ‘Bid’ while the solicitation is in an ‘Open’ status, and download the actual bid submission attachments once the bidding period ends and the status shifts to ‘Pending Selection.’  PU’s who create their solicitations in the NC eProcurement Sourcing tool will continue to view their bid responses on their Sourcing Event.

While a solicitation is in an ‘Open’ status and still accepting ‘Bids,’ PU’s can see which vendors have submitted a bid response but won’t see the actual contents of the bid responses.

When a solicitation reaches a status of ‘Pending Selection’ and is no longer accepting ‘Bids,’ PUs will both see and may download all vendors’ submitted bid responses.

Viewing Bids for a Solicitation in ‘Pending Selection’ Status (1:00:37)

Viewing bid responses through a solicitation will limit the responses visible only to those for that solicitation, but State Procurement Users (PU) can view all bid responses received for any solicitation created in their organization via the ‘Bids’ Section on the navigation panel of the Agency App.
