External Business Partner: Bidder
We are planning to use SRM just for the bidding process. We are not planning to use SUS.
Could you please explain what are the steps to set up ECC Purchasing Vendors as SRM Bidders?
Also, is there a functionality to massively send user ID and passwords to Bidders? Or it has to be done one by one?
You can create a contact person for the vendor in the SRM from the Manage Business Partners Tx.
This contact person shall have the Bidder role assigned,can access the SRM URL and submit his Bid response
The only issue will be as to how the enterprise can allow access to the SRM URL .
This may be possible thro' the Portal.
We are still exploring the options.
