How to Evaluate a Project with a BidTable (+ VIDEO)

To Evaluate a BidTable you must first open up the Scorecard. This is found under the Submissions section of the Project Details page.

Note that if you are a project owner, in order to see the scorecard, you must add yourself to the evaluation group with the BidTable assigned. 

A Scorecard pop-up will appear over the BidTable you are evaluating. Click on Score

The Criteria section will expand. Click on Score Order List to access the Order List view, where you will be able to select which vendors have been awarded which items. 

This video below will outline the steps involved with BidTable Evaluation once you have the Order List open:

Hidden Columns

Buyers cannot put values into the Vendor Value Column until at least one submission has been made. Once a selection has been made, you may select a basket or multiple items, then under bulk actions select Apply Vendor Values


Once you have done so, you’ll get an “Apply Vendor Values” window that will let you fill in your  hidden vendor columns. You may select your Vendor Column from the top drop-down menu, then fill in the values next to each Vendor line. Once you are done, click Save.


You can find more info on creating calculated BidTable Columns by checking out our Creating Calculated BidTable Columns page.

You can also download/export your BidTable order list as an Excel file. See How do I download/export a BidTable order list?
