A manual bid on the INGENIOUS.BUILD platform is a proposal that you have received off-system. Meaning, a lower party has emailed or communicated the details of their proposal without using the INGENIOUS.BUILD platform. Adding a manual bid allows you to transfer the proposal information on to the bid package for a specific scope of work.
The Bid Package must be created in order to manually add Proposals from bidders.
Navigate the selected Bid Package's Bids tab > Click Add Manual Bid button at the bottom of the screen
