Two Envelope bID:-

The two envelope response process allows for an RFx that separates the supplier technical quote from the price quote for separate evaluation by the purchasing organization.

The two envelope process allows a supplier to create technical response separate from a price response.

This multi-party verification process allows for a timed opening of the technical response and the price response by designated openers.

A two envelope process allows for the separation of the technical response

from the price by using collaboration folders accessible only by designated

individuals in the purchasing and evaluation groups.

A two envelope process also allows a supplier to create a technical

response separate from its price response.

The multi-party verification process ensures that responses are not

accessed nor opened before their designated opening times, and can help

in the prevention of fraud in the competitive evaluation.

1. A one envelope approach contains both the technical and financial proposal in a single envelope, while a two envelope approach requires the technical bid and financial bid in separate envelopes. The two-envelope approach means that the technical bid is opened and evaluated first, before the financial bid is opened. The advantage is that the evaluation cannot be influenced by the price of the bidder
