Portuguese term or phrase: edital de licitacao
This is the heading of the entire document. I have wavered between Tender Proposal, Notice of Tender, Invitation to Tender.
As ever, I really appreciate any ideas on this one...
Kind regards,

notice


Explanation:
It is a public notice of tender, not an invitation. There are invitations to tender, but those are officially termed as "convite"

"Bidding Terms and Conditions"


Explanation:
covers the entire waterfront, so to speak, including the (public) notice of the bidding competition and the specific requirements to be met by each bidder's technical proposal and business or economic proposal.

I'd avoid "tender" and "proposal," because those terms relate to items that the prospective bidders will be submitting. "Invitation to Tender" has the right syntax, but (as pointed out above), an invitation to submit a proposal is a fairly specific thing, and might not be appropriate in your context.

Hope this helps!

invitation to Tender, Bidding Documents ?


Explanation:
SEE THIS PAGE WHERE YOUR TERM IS TRANSLATED AS \'BIDDING DOCUMENTS\'

http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.fisepe.pe.gov.br/su...

This would be appropriate if you are MAKING THE BID or OFFER


Tender Proposal, Notice of Tender, Invitation to Tender. The last sounds best, IF your document is a description of a tender being put out to offer.
