“Locking” an Event Is Not Just for Government Spend
Large, private company based in a country where corruption is a challenge
Existing manual procurement process:
All suppliers hand in a sealed envelope with their tender offers
Offers were put in a box and opened once a week
Unable to monitor the progress
Did suppliers understand the specifications?
Were all questions responded to?
Did suppliers bid for all items tendered?
All Tenders are now run via Scanmarket
To avoid corruption, all events are automatically created as locked (Event manager can't access the questionnaire and the bid list until after event deadline)
The Event manager is now able to monitor the progress and follow up on suppliers before deadline:
Have suppliers logged in?
Are suppliers working on the Tender?
Have suppliers answered all questions and submitted bids for all items?
Messaging is used to respond to Q&A from suppliers
Improved process and ability to monitor progress and supplier activity
Better support and communication with suppliers
Easier to track compliance for audit documentation and prove that internal policies are complied with
Our client has made an active choice to act responsibly and fight corruption by using the “Locked events” feature
