After an RFP has been published, you can communicate directly with your suppliers individually, as well as provide clarifications to all suppliers solicited on the RFP.
Begin by finding the RFP under the Opened tab and clicking on the Title.
Then, click on the Comments button in the upper right-hand corner of the RFP.
This will allow you to leave Internal Notes for other Fairmarkit users, or post Supplier Clarifications to all parties included in this RFP.
To send a clarification to all suppliers, type into the Say something field and hit he Enter key or click Post to finalize the message. These clarifications will be displayed on the proposal page as well as being emailed to the suppliers in the same manner as the individual messages.
To communicate directly with an individual supplier, scroll down to the Requests section and click on the chat bubble icon to the right of the supplier.
This will take you to the conversation with this supplier in the Messaging tab.
Type into the Say something field and hit the Enter key or click the Send button that appears at the end of the field. The supplier will receive these messages via email as well as in their Fairmarkit Supplier Portal account.
Supplier responses will appear as notifications under the Chat icon in the top right next to your name.
Clicking on the message notification will return you to the Messaging tab and take you directly to the specific supplier who sent the message.
