Types of Rajasthan Tenders
Usually there are two types of Rajasthan tenders classified on the basis of the cost of documents. Some of them come free for which no cost is to be paid and the bids can be posted online or offline accordingly. However such tenders are few and far between. Most of the tenders come with stipulations for some costs towards the tender documents as well as security deposits for bidding. When the bid is successful, the security deposit is retained by the requesting agency. For others who fail to win the bid, the security deposits are refunded on requested.
Recent Trend of E-Tenders
These days there is a clear and pronounced trend towards e-procurement in Rajasthan. On the one hand floating Rajasthan tenders on the web helps the requesting authorities to get the best at the cheapest since there would be numerous bids and on the other hand bidders get the opportunity of bidding for the project without having to go to the place of bidding in person. This saves them substantial time, effort and money and the process thus have turned out to be mutually beneficial for both procurers and bidders.
