When the created event is posted, bidders receive  notification of the event. They can browse events based on various search and  sort criteria, place bids based on the parameters that you have set for the  event, and receive notifications about the status of the event. 


All bids will be entered in the PeopleSoft environment for  departments who currently take online bids. Eventually all departments will  move to this methodology. For bidders who enter their bids using fax or mail,  you can enter the faxed or mailed bids online for them.
