(iii) to archive the process-related documentation
uploaded in the Etenders.ge for five years, accessible from anywhere by using PC with internet acess (which, in most cases, is used by the company for the reporting purposes).
In addition to the above, some of the system features cannot be performed without the use of electronic procedures - for example, the electronic auction between the bidders is impossible in case of announcement - for that purposes the electronic auction as a separate method of sale is available in the system; Additionally, electronic procedures (with electronic submission of proposals) simplifies submission of an offer from abroad.
types of electronic procedures
are integrated into
An electronic auction
is a procedure within which electronic trading between the potential suppliers is held - suppliers are able to see the prices of competitors (without knowing their identities) and required/allowed to increase initial prices in online mode.
The so called English Auction is built into our system, which functions as follows: The bidders submit their initial prices (and respective documents) at the stage of the auction "submission of proposals commenced" - via Etenders.ge. As soon as the submission of bids is finished (the time is predefined by an announcer), the window of the advertisement-details will change to the auction-window and the auction will start.
The initial duration of the electronic auction is 15 minutes (increased bids are placed during this period). During the last two minutes of the course the remaining time of the auction is extended and returned at two minutes, in case any of the bidders submits higher price compared to the competitors (this is in order to avoid last second bids).
without auction implies submission of proposals electronically through Etenders.ge as well. Submission starts and ends according to the predefined times by an announcer. As the name of this procedure suggests, the online
auction is not held
while running of this procedure.
Both, an electronic auction and electronic sale
without auction can be carried out as a
restricted procedure and/or as an anonymous announcement
. In case of restricted procedure only selected companies are allowed to submit their proposals. In case of an anonymous announcement the identity of announcer becomes visible only to the bidders, which have submitted their proposals.
Technically, the announcement of restricted procedures in our system is performed as follows: by announcing any type of electronic procedure, you can note the suppliers who will be granted access to the details of your advertisement, and will be able to submit the proposals. The only term is that the candidate who is entitled to participate in the restricted procedure must be registered on
