In Negometrix there is the possibility to create multiple rounds for a solicitation (RFP, ITB, RFQ). Each round contains a number of steps, including a so-called 'vault moment,' at which point the deadline for submission has passed and the buyer can view offers (bids, quotes, proposals). You can determine the number of rounds that are appropriate for each solicitation.
Once you have started a solicitation, it will contain one or more rounds, depending on your chosen process. These can be seen in the left menu. The name of the round is shown in the grey bar.
If you want to add an extra round, you can follow these steps:
- Within the solicitation, click on the Planning tab. You will see "Submit solicitations" per round.
- When you hover your mouse over the Planning tab, you will find a button with Add at the bottom of each round.
- When you click on this button, a new round will be added. You will also see this immediately appear in the left side navigation menu.
If it is not possible to add a round, this may have to do with the process selected. Not every process facilitates these dynamic rounds.
