Each sub-contractor is sent an email with a unique URL, where they can then submit their price, view the tender drawings and see the bill of quants.
BuilderStorm’s Tender Packages feature will make tracking and issuing sub-contract packages a smooth and transparent process.
Create your package, set the deadline, an award date and attach the tender documents straight from your computer or directly from the BuilderStorm system. You will have total control on how the package is set up. Itemised bill or lump sum? the choice is yours.
You can add a list of sub-contractors that you wish to bid for the work, straight from a simple company management interface. You can see how often they have been invited to bid on a package, how often they have actually submitted a price and how many times your company has awarded them a package. This gives you complete confidence that the companies you invite to bid will actually submit a price.
Each sub-contractor is sent an email with a unique URL, where they can then submit their price, view the tender drawings and see the bill of quants. They submit the total bid and click the submit button. They can do all of this without the need for a BuilderStorm account.
As each bid is submitted, you are notified and can view the prices in real time within the BuilderStorm system. You can then award the best sub-contractor the appropriate package from the system and send all other contractors a notice, letting them know that they have been unsuccessful.
Extra features of the system include a “best price” filter, showing you all of the best prices submitted for each item in the bill of quantities and the ability to compare contractors on one screen. You can then use this data to ask your preferred contractor to review the rates for items that are on the high side.
