Once you have accepted the invitation to the solicitation you would like to bid on, or have clicked on a solicitation through the published solicitations tab, follow these steps to submit your offer through the Negometrix3 Platform.
Step 1: Start your offer
Once you are in the solicitation, you will notice three numbered tabs (as seen in the screenshot below). You will be defaulted to the "Information" tab, which contains information regarding the solicitation. The next two tabs will be greyed out until you press the blue start button on the bottom right side of the screen. To begin your offer, click the start button. Please note you are not obligated to submit an offer by pressing the start button.
Step 2: Fill out your offer
Once in the second tab labeled "Fill out and submit", you will see the requirements of the solicitation broken down into two sections; "Pricing sheets" and "Surveys". Please note that not every solicitation will look exactly like the one provided in the screenshots, and that not every solicitation will include a pricing sheet or a survey.
In this second tab you will notice that the pricing sheet and survey are both colored orange. This means that your offer is incomplete. As you fill out sections of the offer, you will see the orange sections turn green upon completion. Additionally, the "status" column lists how many items are unfilled, in order to help you keep track of your offer.
If the solicitation you are bidding on contains a pricing sheet, you will need to insert your prices using the "fill out prices" button (highlighted in the screenshot below). In addition, if you have any questions regarding the pricing sheet, you can click the "pose a question to the buyer" button, also highlighted in the screenshot below.
