Open to all
Most opportunities on the Marketplace are 'open to all' approved sellers.
The page will show if an 'open to all' opportunity is set to a specific category. You must be assessed and approved to offer services under the same category to respond to these opportunities.
To request an assessment:
- Log in to your dashboard on the Marketplace.
- Open the opportunity page.
- Select 'Request assessment' and complete the steps.
Open to selected
If an opportunity is ‘open to selected’, it means the buyer has invited selected sellers to respond. Once these opportunities are published, we notify invited sellers by email.
If you do not intend on applying for the opportunity, please let the Marketplace know through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Buyers are encouraged to set their opportunities as ‘open to all’. In some circumstances, publishing ‘open to selected’ may be preferable to the buyer. We show these opportunities to keep the digital sourcing needs of buyers visible to all sellers.
How do I get invited for 'open to selected' opportunities?
Some buyers choose sellers based on their own processes, requirements and circumstances. Buyers may select sellers through our seller catalogue. We encourage you to keep your profile up to date, with an accurate summary of your business offering, capabilities and contact information.
