How to manage quoting periods

A vendor can only submit their quote response to your RFQ during the assigned quoting period. Felix allows you to extend, shorten, close and re-open the quoting period for your vendors.

Close an RFQ

An RFQ will automatically close when the quoting period for the entire RFQ ends. However, you may wish to manually close the RFQ before the nominated end date if you have received a sufficient number of quotes from vendors, or if project delivery has been paused.

To close an RFQ:

  1. Navigate to Projects & Quotes > Requests for Quotation from your Felix dashboard
  2. Locate the RFQ that you would like to close
  3. Hover over the more icon beside the relevant RFQ
  4. Select View Details from the drop-down menu
  5. Click the Actions button in the top right corner
  6. Select Close RFQ from the drop-down menu
  7. Click Yes to confirm


Note:  Vendors will not be able to submit or update quotes when the RFQ is closed.

Re-open an RFQ

To re-open an RFQ:

  1. Navigate to Projects & Quotes > Requests for Quotation from your Felix dashboard
  2. Locate the RFQ that you would like to re-open
  3. Hover over the more icon beside the relevant RFQ
  4. Select View Details from the drop-down menu
  5. Click the Actions button in the top right corner
  6. Select Re-Open RFQ from the drop-down menu
