IREPS e-Tender : Why vendors are not able to submit their bids for some tenders on IREPS?

First, vendors need to register on www.ireps.gov.in to participate in tenders published on ireps website. Any registered vendor can participate in bidding before tender closing date/time for open tenders (advertise tenders) published on ireps website.

For tenders other than open type (advertise tenders) only those registered vendors can participate in bidding which are addressed/included in tender by tender publishing authority. If vendors were addressed or included in tender then they should get mail/message after tender publishing
.
So if vendors are not able to submit their bids for a tender then it means either they are not registered as a vendor on www.ireps.gov.in or tender is of other than open type (advertise tenders) and they are not addressed for that tender.
