SMS text messages streamline communication with vendors, suppliers and evaluation team members and will ensure the same information is provided to all parties in a timely and equitable manner.

  • Provide links to tender updates and points of clarification during the tender process
  • Provide details of tender lodgement mechanisms
  • Send closing time alerts and close time details

Staff communication

  • Communicate simply with diverse groups e.g. tender board, tender evaluation team – a single message can be sent to multiple handsets
  • SMS allows for two-way communication, making it easy for staff to respond quickly
  • Send alerts, reminders, updates and meeting times

Compliance

  • Communicate tender evaluation progress to all parties at the same time
  • Assist with compliance within a probity framework where SMS would provide supporting evidence of information that has been provided to tender candidates
  • Ability to prove message delivery with delivery receipt confirmation

Cost efficiencies with SMS

SMS is by far the most cost-effective method of contacting tender stakeholders for ad-hoc or periodic communications. SMS is faster and cheaper than phoning or mailing and more effective than sending an email.
