Bonfire allows you to display which Vendor was awarded a contract under a project. An Award Notice can be only internal to users within the organization, or it can be made public.
Marking a vendor as Awarded does not automatically notify any vendors, nor does publishing a Public Award Notice.
To notify respondents, we suggest sending out a Public Notice announcing that an award has been made, as the Public Notice will be emailed to all respondents.
NOTE: In order for Vendors to view the opportunity and the Public Award Notice, your portal must have the Public Award Notice and Public Archives features. If you are unsure whether these are enabled, please reach out to your Organization Administrator or to Bonfire Support.
You can also simply notify respondents externally (e.g., by email).
Please note that who is notified on a Public Award Notice differs from who is notified of a Public Notice.
