Subcontractors who were invited to the project can forward their invitations to partners or suppliers who are helping them with their bids. The person who received the forwarded invite becomes a vendor on that project. Vendors have limited access to the project’s details.
This article explains how to see if a subcontractor is a vendor on a project.
To identify vendors on a project
Vendors are not listed as individual entries under the “Bidders” tab in a bid package. Additionally, the “Find” feature does not identify vendors in a project, only companies who were directly invited to bid.
To find a vendor in a project, go to the appropriate bid package. Scroll through each company listed in the “Bidders” tab until you see “Vendors invited by” on the right.
