To choose a Request For Proposals winner, follow these steps:
1. Open your "submitted proposal by the supplier" notification email, or go to the Requests for Proposals page and use the info-card "Select Suppliers" to access to Request for Proposal.
2. You can select multiple suppliers in the Request for Proposal or even approve a different supplier for each item. In this way, you can better choose the best deals and save money.
3. Suppliers whose product proposals you approve will be notified of your decision.
If you approve only some items, or if the items are no longer relevant for the needs, you can complete the Request for Proposals by hitting the Complete button. The status of the Request for Proposals will be changed to Completed, and the statuses of unapproved products will be changed to No Proposals.
If you approved all available products, the Request for Proposal status would be automatically changed to Completed.
You can also attach documents to your Request for Proposal as needed, or add some internal notes using the button Add Note, or leave a comment by using the Add Comment field and tag another user with "@" to send the comment or even add new followers.
5. You can create a Purchase Order from a Purchase Requisition. Just go to the Purchase Order page and click PO from Requisitions. The items’ prices that you approved will be added to the Purchase Order.
