QuestDirect.org Process Overview
QuestDirect.org Buy Events Sourcing buyer and seller buy event process flow 1.The buyer creates an event, and optionally copies from an existing event, an event template, requisitions, purchase orders, contracts, Manufacturing bills of material (BOMs), Engineering BOMs, or planned orders. 2.The buyer includes bid factors and business constraints, and invites bidders. 3.Optionally, the buyer invites collaborators to give input to the event, reviews the input, and posts the event based on the input. 4.Bidders register, review the event, and submit their bids. 5.The buyer evaluates the bids manually or uses the optimization engine, and can create another round of the event to solicit more bids. 6.Optionally, the buyer invites collaborators to give input on the bids and bidders. 7.The buyer awards the winning bid, and the system notifies the winners and nonwinners. 8.The buyer either creates a purchase order or contract to order the goods or services from the warded 9.bidder. If the bidder isn't previously a supplier, the system creates a record
QuestDirect.org Sell Events 1.The seller creates an event by selecting depreciated assets. The seller optionally includes bid factors, and invites bidders or customers. 2.Optionally, the seller invites collaborators to give input to the event, reviews the input, and posts the event based on the input. 3.Bidders register, review the event, and submit their bids. 4.The seller evaluates the bids based on the bid factors, and can create another round of the event to solicit more bids. 5.Optionally, the seller invites collaborators to give input on the bids and bidders. 6.The seller awards the winning bid. 7.The system notifies PeopleSoft Asset Management
QuestDirect.org Event Types SituationEvent Type Information gathering for a future request for proposal.RFI (request for information) Selling depreciated assets. You award the event to the highest bidder. Sell/Auction price-only event. You select the bidders. Compete On the Basis of Price option on the Header Details page to create a price only sell event. A reverse auction where price is not the only consideration. You award the event to bidder with the best score. Buy/Auction event. You select the bidders compete On the Bases of Score option on the Header Details page Add additional line bid factors to create a score based buy auction event. A complex purchase with many bid factors, such as a large procurement for a government agency. Bidders don't actively bid against one another, but instead submit their best overall bid. Buy/RFx event. Optionally, you can create multiple rounds to negotiate further with selected bidders.

Creating an Event Header Line(s) Processes
QuestDirect.org Bid Factors Bid factors are questions bidders must answer about their products, services, or company. You set weightings for each bid factor, letting bidders know how much value you give to that portion of their bid. You can also create bid factors that you do not display to the bidders, but instead answer during the analysis of the bids. These bid factors can be for subjective responses such as current business relationship or interview results.
QuestDirect.org Header vs Line Bid Factors Header bid factors relate to the overall event and cover the entire event. For example: Is this a minority-owned or woman-owned business? In what state is the corporate headquarters located? Is the company ISO certified? Line bid factors can be set for individual Event lines. For example: Color might be an important factor. You can set different colors or weightings for a color list bid factor on the line items. You can set ideals and weightings that, for the line item, differ from the same bid factor set in the header.
QuestDirect.org Total Cost Modeling Analyze bids based on three different criteria: Lowest price Best score Lowest total cost All three methods can be used simultaneously to give you the most information for making the best award decision. Costs are calculated based on: Bidder's bid price, Bidder's bid quantity, Predefined cost range, User-defined cost. Use: manual analysis or optimization engine Calculate a cost related to: Each bidder's response to a bid factor, Total line cost Total event cost
QuestDirect.org Purchasing an item that has a warranty bid factor associated with it ? ITEM: You are asking the bidders to indicate the length of warranty provided for the item with a range of one year to five years. Bid Factor: A longer warranty period reduces maintenance and repair costs. Each extra year of warranty provided = $50 in maintenance and repair per unit. You can assign this cost to the warranty bid factor so that the total cost for this bid factor will be calculated based on the bidder's response. Bidder 1: bid $1,000 per unit but only provide a one-year warranty, Total cost = $1,000 – (1x50) = $950 Bidder 2: bid $1,100 per unit but provide a five-year warranty. Total cost = $1,100 – (5x50) = $850 Even though the first bidder has a lower bid price, the second bidder will have an overall lower cost because the bidder is providing the full five-year warranty.
QuestDirect.org Scoring vs Weighting 3 factors regarding scoring vs. weighting: The score depends on how close the answer to the bid factor comes to the ideal answer. The weighting is based on how important the bid factor is to the overall line or event. The final score is the average of the score and the weighting. The header and line bid factors are scored separately; each bidder gets two scores.
