Users can distribute Statements of Work to multiple suppliers using the SOW Bid functionality. SOW Bid functionality is designed for buyers who have a project requiring a statement of work but do not have a particular supplier selected. An SOW Bid can be created and sent to multiple suppliers for review and feedback, and the buyer can then select an appropriate supplier for the project.
SOW Bids often include questions to help assess the suitability of suppliers. Suppliers would be required to answer the questions when responding to the bid, and buyers would use answers to determine whether the supplier is capable of completing the project.
Questions can be added manually to SOW Bids, in the same way that characteristics can be collected into libraries, a Question Library can be created to maintain a collection of commonly used questions.
