Information in this document applies to any platform.


As per the Oracle E-Business Suite Documentation (

Negotiation Style: The style determines who will be able to see the quotes/bids and when. The three styles are:

Open(RFIs and auctions only) - All suppliers can see the quotes/bids, though the responding supplier's identity is concealed.

Blind - Only the buyer can see the quotes/bids.

Sealed - The buyer can see the responses when the negotiation is unlocked. Both the buyer and suppliers can see the responses when they are unsealed.
