An update will be made in Cloudia Sourcing on 27 November 2018 where the system will be reformed in response to the customer feedback received. The changes will include, among other things, reforms to the procurement objects defined in the system, criteria and scoring, and well as reforms to the electronic auction, tender form and comparison.


How will the reform affect the existing notices?


The reform will have no effect on notices that are in progress or have already been published. Regardless of the reform, these notices will proceed to the end of the entire call for tenders process using the current criteria, and their comparison is carried out using the current comparison table. The change will also have no effect on suppliers as far as these notices are concerned.


Framework agreement

  • There will be no changes to any active competitive tendering under a framework agreement.
  • When a mini competition is created, a selection can be made as to whether the new or old criteria are to be used.
  • If a competitive tendering that was created using the new criteria is used as a template, the new mini competition will also use the new criteria.

DPS

  • There will be no changes to active dynamic purchasing systems.
  • When an internal competitive tendering is created, a selection must be made as to whether the new or old criteria are to be used.
  • If a competitive tendering that was created using the new criteria is used as a template, the new internal competitive tendering will also use the new criteria.

Negotiated procedure currently in progress or restricted procedure

  • No changes to the round that is currently in progress
  • For new rounds, a selection must be made as to whether the new or old criteria are to be used if the previous round was conducted using the old criteria.
  • If the previous round was created using the new criteria, the new criteria will be used for all the remaining rounds as well.

Supplier register

  • There will be no changes to any active registers.
  • When a competitive tendering is created, a selection must be made as to whether the new or old criteria are to be used.
  • If a competitive tendering that was created using the new criteria is used as a template, the new competitive tendering will also use the new criteria.


Creating a new notice


When a new notice is created, it is currently possible to choose whether the notice is to be created using the new or the old criteria. When the notice is created using the new criteria, the new scoring options will also be available for the notice. The tender form displayed to the suppliers will also change in this regard. The comparison will then be carried out using the reformed comparison table. If electronic auction is enabled for the notice, the auction will take place in the new auction view.



Creating a new notice based on an old notice or template


A notice can be created using the new criteria also when it is created based on an old template or notice that was created using the old criteria. In this case, the selections matching the selections made for the old notice can also be found from the new notice. From the information page of the notice, select ‘Create a new notice based on this one and switch to new criteria’.
