bidding and auction process in SRM 701

Hi Experts

im new in Sourcing of SRM

we immplemention self service procurement in classic scenario

now we want using bidding and auction process

is it possible in our case?

i want this scenario:

we create RFX -->RFX approved with manager--> RFX sent to the bidder and the invited bidders submit their bids.and complete their response and send back to us --> we compare the document and  choose winner

is it possible?

if its possible how i can sent RFX to the bidder?

Regarding output settings, what are the main settings we need to complete to enable sending bids via email, and where do define / assign the output forms?What are the steps for setting up weighting and ranking to enable evaluation and comparison of bids?

Regards

Elham

    Hello Elham,

         Regarding your first question

    "we create RFX -->RFX approved with manager--> RFX sent to the bidder and the invited bidders submit their bids.and complete their response and send back to us --> we compare the document and  choose winner"

    This is the standard bidding process.And yes this is very much possible.

    Now your second question

    "

    if its possible how i can sent RFX to the bidder?

    Regarding output settings, what are the main settings we need to complete to enable sending bids via email, and where do define / assign the output forms?What are the steps for setting up weighting and ranking to enable evaluation and comparison of bids?"

    Once the Rfx is approved by the approvers , its ordered successfully and then email is triggered to all the suppliers (whose email id has been maintained at the time of creating\transferring vendor from R/3) which are present in that particular Rfx. Once the email is triggered then supplier gets the information about the Rfx. They start bidding and once they SUBMIT then only there final price is shown in the Rfx . They can bid till the end date . Once the end date is reached , through price comparision you can get the best bid and through response and award you can create the PO against that best supplier.

    But if you are not happy with the best bid or u don't receive good amount of suppliers , then you can convert that Particular Rfx into Live Auction ( Button present on the Rfx Screen) . For live Auction , you have to maintain all the setting same as you did for others e.g Transaction type  , number range and also the business function as well. Please have a look to the below details for Live Auction
