The tendering process is about keeping track of the initiated recruitment campaigns to fairly communicate the various opportunities to local businesses. It can be used to register multiple opportunities offered by the company along with the list of businesses applying for a tender. Opportunities include full details on the offer, every tender evaluation based on the pre-defined criteria as well as attributed contracts and local benefits details.
