EMD Processing in RFx


Hi Friends,

We are using SRM 7.0 with PPS. I have some doubts regarding EMD processing. Kindly correct me if I am wrong.

1. What is the significance of EMD required in RFx ? I am not getting any effects in RFx like Tender Fee. For example if Tender Fee required then Bidder should pay Tender fees then only he is able to submit his bid. But for EMD no provision I found for Supplier or Bidder side.

2. Bidder is able to submit his bid even EMD required.

3. Supplier is able to open Technical Bid whereas Bidder has not submitted EMD even EMD required.

4. In Government organization before opening tender, first required to check EMD .If EMD paid by bidder then only Technical Bid opens. If EMD not paid or corresponding document not available, Technical Bid should be rejected and Technical Bid will not open by Supplier. In this case Technical envelope will not open for respective bidder.

5. How to map above process in SRM 7.0.because Supplier is able to open Technical Bid even Bidder has not submitted EMD. If I reject Bidder before examine Technical Bid (through colder), Supplier is able to view Rejected Bidderu2019s Technical detail (in cFolder) which should not be happen. Is it standard functionality or needs work around for restrictions.

6. Is it possible if Bidder not paid EMD then Technical Bid should not open by system or through an error message?

Kindly suggest me .
