The e-sourcing platform used by Ørsted is called Scanmarket, and it is used for tender processes throughout the organisation. Scanmarket enables Ørsted to secure a straightforward and structured tender process and communication with tenderers. The tool allows us to conduct negotiations with tenderers.

Benefits of e-sourcing use for the tenderer include:

  1. Timesaving due to instant access and submission
  2. Easy and efficient means of submitting tender material
  3. Transparency due to clear and structured process
  4. Equal access for all tenderers ensures fair treatment

E-auction

Ørsted may conduct the final round of price negotiations for a tender by means of an e-auction in Scanmarket. In an e-auction, the tenderers compete directly against each other and without any interference from Ørsted. For the duration of an e-auction the tenderers are able to adjust their prices downward continuously. The individual tenderer's ranking is indicated at all times, and will change continuously and in real time according to the tenderer's bids in the e-auction.

Benefits of e-auction use for the tenderer include:

  1. Fair and transparent price negotiation process
  2. Market insight for tenderers due to live feedback on price level
  3. Timesaving compared to traditional price negotiations

If you are participating in a tender, where Ørsted intends to conduct final price negotiations by means of an e-auction, you will receive information regarding the e-auction and preparation/training opportunities at least two business days ahead.
