French term or phrase: consulter (in this case)
(Required): This is from the supply specifications for railcars

"Face à la difficulté souvent rencontrée de recevoir cette documentation, XXX a transmis aux fournisseurs **consultés** dans le cadre de l'appel d'Offre, un « Documentation Supply Agreement » ayant pour but de récolter auprès d’eux leur accord de principe sur la fourniture de leur documentation détaillée de la même manière que le fait XXX."

Does this mean that the suppliers have been "approached" with a view to possible participation in the tender procedure?
