Evaluation Management

One of the most detailed part of the RFP or BID timeline is the evaluation process. Most agencies conduct this process on a paper-based system. Evaluation management enables any organization to interactively conduct the RFP and bid evaluation process entirely online. Buying officers can assign evaluators, set evaluation criteria, attach related documents, build scoring measures and allow online communication. Technical, proposal, cost, preference and presentation can all be evaluated. Imagine taking your process and making it more seamless and less paper driven.Vendor Management offers a configurable and intuitive registration process which ensures that vendor registrations are complete and unique to avoid duplicate records.

Insurance Certificate Management w/ My Insurance

Suppliers who contract with government agencies are required to maintain current insurance. Unfortunately, this job of evaluating, requesting, updating and maintaining the insurance files are left up to either procurement or the user customer departments. When done manually, or through non-centralized methods, the tracking becomes more onerous and complicated. And what if something happens? Where the lawyers are now involved, and the Agency is now exposed to liability issues? Now, you need immediate access to the most up-to-date insurance certificate on file, along with all the past updates. The easiest and most stress-free way to handle the insurance desk is to automate. Learn more about the capabilities of how the PlanetBids System can provide the tools and transparency needed for this detailed and tedious, but extremely important part of the contracting process.

Construction / Public Works Webinar

Managing a construction bid is so multi-faceted, it can be overwhelming at times. Questions abound! Who should we send the bids to? Who’s interested in possibly bidding? Do the plan rooms know? Did we do our estimations correctly? Are we getting the best bids we can? What about transparency? Are we getting bids from qualified bidders? Do they meet all the requirements for my agency/state?

Many eProcurement systems are not equipped to handle construction bids. In this specially designed webinar, Ria Diaz, Manager of Client Services for PlanetBids and former Buyer III and SB/DVBE advocate for San Jose State University will be discussing the advantages of using the PB System™ for construction bids.
