How to enter the surrogate quotes if supplier has already acknowledged participation?

- Buyer creates an RFQ.
- Supplier logs into Oracle and choose "Acknowledge Intent to Participate" from the drop down menu, then submit the quote to the buyer via FAX instead of the online Oracle system.
- In the meantime, the RFQ has now passed the Close date.
- The buyer go into the system and enter the surrogate quote on behalf of the supplier, but it will not let it because the supplier acknowledged their intent to participate.

The application gives an error message:

X Error:
You cannot respond to this auction on behalf of the supplier contact because the actual supplier user has already responded to this auction.

What is the way to enter this surrogate bid now?  The supplier can not do it because the RFQ is closed and the Sourcing Super User can not do it because the supplier selected the intent to participate.
