Once suppliers have submitted their bids and the auction closes, it is then the responsibility of the Evaluation Owner to evaluate the revised bids and the Event Owner to award the project. Note that the awarding is not informed to the supplier through the system, but offline. However, a record is kept on the system of successful suppliers.

Tracking Revised Bid Price
After suppliers have submitted bids during the Sealed Bid and the auction ends, the next step is for all the suppliers to submit a Revised Bid Price (Supplier Bill of Quantity) to reflect their Final Bid Price. See article on Track Supplier Progress in an Auction. You can communicate with suppliers to ensure they submit their revised bid prices before conducting the evaluation process.
Evaluating Supplier's Revised Final Bid Price
The evaluation of the final bid price does not show unit prices, but rather shows the total price for each item, for each supplier arranged in columns.
