To bid for a tender is to quote a price for a particular job. It can either be a constructional job or repairs, etc. Here, we will talk about Odisha tenders and the documents needed for bidding an Odisha tender online.
Earlier there used to be auctions for government projects where contractors would assemble and give their bids on paper. This would sometimes lead to chaos and delays.
To combat that and also with everything being digitized day-by-day, the government of India decided to launch e procurement – an online process of inviting bids for a tender.
There are many websites where you can place your bids via the E-procurement process. If you want to access information about e procurement of any tenders online, you can visit third party websites like BidAssist. BidAssist will also help you provide complete information along with bidding assistance. Such websites have a very clean and easy interface which is comprehensive. Also, all the tenders that you find on government websites are present on these tender portals as well.
These are designed in a way to help bidders place their bids easily. There are self-help sections also. However, with a government website, you get the option to register as a bidder online and get e-signature – at the same place.
Documents Required for Odisha Tender Bidding
Whenever a contractor wants to bid, they require a set of documents to support their bid. Now these documents may vary as per the tender category but there are some basic documents required for government tenders in India.
Firstly, you need to get yourself registered on the Odisha E-procurement website.
Documents Required for Bidder Registration via E-procurement
- Bidders mobile number and official email-ID (both must be active throughout the process)
- Personal details of the bidder (name, correspondence address, etc.)
- PAN/TAN (whichever is applicable)
Documents Supporting your Bid for Odisha Tender
- Your company/organization’s turnover (balance-sheet)
- Organization’s details/credentials
- Details of the company’s manufacturing capacity & process
- Machine & equipment details (to be used in the project)
- Quality control system of the company
Miscellaneous Documents Required for E procurement
- Registration document under Income Tax, GST, etc.
- Previous tender details about the tender allocated to them (to show their work experience)
- Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)
Other than the documents & details stated above, you need to pay the fee for placing your bid.
Now, since we are talking about the digital procurement process for Odisha tenders, it only seems logical to make the payment in the same mode – digitally. You may choose from the options present on your state’s e procurement website. Be it Delhi tenders or Odisha tenders, the payment options would be the same.
Please note that this tender fee, in most of the cases, will not be refundable. This means that you will not get this amount back if you do not win the bid.
Now that we know what is required to place a bid, let’s go back to some basics and learn how to find the government tenders online.
