Click the Submit eBid Proposal button found on the bid details page.
Input your bid amount, or a zero as a placeholder, and click the Next button.
To create an easy shortcut to return to your eBid response click the Save and Finish Later button in the upper-right corner.
To return to the eBid response click on the Responses tab located to the right of the Activities tab at the top of your page.
Click the Responses sub-tab. You will see that your bid is waiting here with a status showing incomplete.
Click the Edit button by your name in the top-right corner or in the lower right-hand side of the page.
Use the Previous or Next buttons in your eBid response to get to the correct page that you need to edit.
Once you have successfully completed and submitted your eBid you can go back to the Responses tab and check to make sure the following two things have changed:
- The status is now showing complete.
- The agency required documents all documents listed have a green circle indicating a successful upload.
This means you have successfully completed your eBid response on DemandStar! You can return or edit your response in the same way, until the bid due date.
Another quick tip to make your eBid more competitive is to begin the process early, starting days or hours before the bid is due. This increases your chances of getting the help if you need it and submitting your bid prior to the deadline.
