How to bid for tenders on e procurement portal Karnataka

Not all tenders published on the Karnataka state eTendering portal will be relevant to you. Before you start preparing for the tender response, read the tender document requirements. It lists the eligibility criteria, qualifications, terms of contract, and other tender details for bidders to know of.

Analyse if your company is capable of fulfilling the order in case you win this contract.

  • Fill in all the details correctly:

Once you have found a suitable tender in Karnataka start filling in the details carefully. Support your proposal with substantial documents/previous project details so that the buyer department gets confidence in awarding you the contract.

In most cases, the list of documents required will be mentioned including details on submission file format. Ensure that you are submitting the bid proposal and documents in the requested formats, e.g., PDF, Excel etc. and naming the files appropriately. Also, don’t miss to submit the receipts of the tender fees and EMD (if applicable).

  • Make it value for money:

Although the government have bifurcation such as L1 (Lowest bidder 1), L2 and L3, what makes your proposal attractive is when you offer value for money services. True, you will have to quote a competitive price bid that’s also lucrative for your business, but what matters most is the value that your proposal offers.

  • Submit your response before the deadline:

Do not wait it till the last moment to submit your proposal. There are chances that you miss out on an important aspect. Also, when you submit your tender application in time, it gives the buyer organisation the time required to evaluate your application in detail. (Learn more about tender evaluation).

Therefore, check the tender due date (i.e., tender closing date), work on it well in advance and submit it before the deadline.
