BidConnect is a FREE program that allows contractors to submit electronic bid files to agencies that use the SharpeSoft IPM application in their bid openings.
The agency exports its bid schedule from IPM and makes the resulting file available for bidders to download. The contractor then downloads the file and imports it to BidConnect.
BidConnect then shows the contractor each bid item and its quantity. The contractor fills in their prices and submits a BidConnect proposal file with their bid.
The agency can then load the proposal file during the bid opening, eliminating data entry errors and greatly reducing the amount of time needed to create the bid tabulation.
