With BC Pro, you have the ability to designate one team member as a Bid Admin for sealed projects. The Bid Admin is the only user able to unseal bids after the due date has passed.
To assign or change a Bid Admin
By default, the project creator is the Bid Admin. Only the current Bid Admin can designate someone else as the Bid Admin.
To change the Bid Admin, within your sealed bid project, navigate to the "Team" tab.
Click on the circle under the “Bid Admin” column for the new Bid Admin.
- If you have an external team member from a different company, if they have not yet viewed your project in BuildingConnected, they cannot be assigned as Bid Admin until they do so.
- If an invited team member has not claimed their account yet, they cannot be assigned as Bid Admin. Claiming an account entails creating an account for BuildingConnected by using your project team invitation or from directly creating an account on the BuildingConnected login page.
Click “Set Bid Administrator" to confirm the change.
The new Bid Admin does not receive a notification that they have been assigned.
