Spanish term or phrase: Sensibilizarse a la comisión de licitación
I believe this is referring to bids, but am not sure about the first part. It's fairly urgent. Thanks in advance.

English translation:the bidding commission should be made aware (of this)
Explanation:
This seems the closest to "raise the awareness of the bidding commission" in your context, turning it around. I've seen "tenders commission" too, but "bidding commission" sounds better to my ear.

I would capitalizae "Bidding Commission".
Here are two references for "sensibilizar" as "raise awareness" and "make aware":
