Goods & Services Tenders: Use of links available in the middle block of Vendor's home page?

After successful login, the Bidder can see his home page which is divided into three blocks namely Left Navigation Block, Middle Body, and Right Navigation Block. In this post, we will discuss the links available in the Middle Body.

The links in the middle body pertain to different folders for viewing Payment details, Tender details, Contract Details and Messages. These links are described below:



 My Payments (TDC/EMD/SD etc.)


  • This page shows details of payments made by the user towards Tender Document Cost (TDC) and Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) during the last 30 days.

  • The Action column of this page contains Action Icons for Viewing / Making payments, and Bid Preparation/ Submission. The actions that can be performed through these icons are described in detail in sub-section Action Icons and their Actions of this manual. 
  • If the tender has not lapsed i.e. if the tender closing date/time has not already passed, the user gets the Bid preparation & Submission icon in the Actions column. The View / Make Payments action icon always appears in this folder to either make payments or to view payments made (if payments for TDC and EMD have been made). The bidder is required to pay the Tender document cost as well as Earnest Money before he can prepare and submit his bid.
    • If any payment towards TDC or EMD is pending, clicking on the Bid preparation icon takes the bidder to the payment page.
    • Clicking on the Tender number of any tender opens the Tender dashboard. Depending on the status of the tender (live/opened etc.), the dashboard shows various buttons to view the tender document, techno-commercial tabulation, Financial tabulation etc.
