TenderBoard's Amend function allows you to extend the deadline for bid submission for a deal that is currently Open, or re-open a deal that is currently Pending Evaluation. In both cases, your organisation's workflow settings must grant you permission to initiate the Amend request, and approvals might be necessary as well.

For more details on the Amend function, you may refer to this article: How is the Amend function in TenderBoard used?

Extending the deadline for bid submission

1. Search for the deal you wish to update, and access the Amend function from the Manage Deal page.

2. On the Amend Purchase Request page, scroll to the 'Closing Date and Time' field, and update the field to your new submission deadline.

3. Note that you might need to update your other fields as well - "Expected Award Date" needs to be set either the same as or after the Closing Date. "Expected Delivery Date" needs to be set after both "Closing Date and Expected Award Date".

4. Update any other fields you wish to update as well, then click on "Review Approval Flow" to proceed to the next page, then click on 'Preview' followed by 'Submit'

5. The amendment pop-up box will allow you to update your suppliers and approvers (if necessary) on the reasons for the amendment
