Some people don't close their offers Mar 4, 2004

Hi milinad

The outsourcer can close the job, in that case all the bidders know that if they weren't chosen somebody else was, and they can also thank everybody for bidding.
That's what they CAN do. They don't always do it, maybe for lack of time...

If you select Jobs / My bids, you'll find the link to the job and you'll be able to see whether it has been closed. The fact that it is not closed doesn't mean that they're still looking for someone.

Usually the time of response is very short, forget it after a week.

Quoting deadline Mar 4, 2004

Thanks, Claudia,
One of the things we're currently discussing as improvements/enhancements to the jobs function is a deadline for quotes, after which the job will be closed automatically. This will take some time to implement, though... thanks for your patience.

Best regards, Ralf
