Need to Reject Informal BID After it Was Automatically Closed in Order to Send Notification to Suppliers
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 13, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Sourcing - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When creating a Blind(informal) solicitation Bid, the bid will close as expected if no award is granted, however it is not possible to cancel the bid.
There is a need to reject all bids and cancel it so the system sends the notification to all suppliers and officially ends the process. The bid remaining in a “closed” status and does not show what truly happened and would not be clear on a report. It would just look like it is pending to be awarded at some point which it was not in this case.
If the Response Type is Sealed (Formal) the bid is allowed to be cancelled from a closed status.
