You cannot open a tender box before the tender closes and you can only download the information from Tenders.Net for 30 days after this closing date and time.
To open a tender box and view the submissions for a tender you will need to log in to Tenders.Net and choose the Open Tender Boxes link under the ADVERTISING menu.
You should see a filtered list of Closed Tenders with the View Submissions icon in the Actions field for each opportunity. Clicking on this icon will open the tender box.
You may be asked to enter your Tender Box password before you can view the submissions. This is not your standard access password and is required to decrypt the data on the system.
