licitante & licitador = bidder


Explanation:
pliegos are literally "sheets"; in public bidding they are "specification sheets" (specs). There are several types. A spec sheet involving cost estimate is the economic specs sheet (a.k.a. economic tender) and we usually refer to the "value (estimated cost) of the tender", not the sheet.
