The tender enquiry process


The tender enquiry process involves selecting a set of scheduled tasks, sending them out to one or more service providers for pricing, receiving the tendered rates back and optionally storing them as approved rates in Flow360.

The e-tendering process within Flow360 closely mirrors a paper based tendering process and is an effective and more efficient way to mange this process.
