1. Letter to all the bidders regarding e-tendering/online reverse auction process



Dear Sirs,


In association with M/s Wipro, Karnataka State Police Housing Corporation Limited wishes to conduct an online tendering / reverse auction bid event for the works of KRRDA under PMGSY through the web site http://www.01markets.com/ksphc.


KSPHC in association with M/s Wipro, has designed the necessary documents which would be made available to you. M/s Wipro, will also provide your representatives the entire key inputs and necessary training, so that you can successfully participate in this E-tendering process / reverse auction event to reap the benefit of etendering.


The contractors intending to bid must possess Digital Certificate for participating in the bid events. The contractor can apply for procuring Digital Certificate through KSPHC.


The e-tendering process / reverse auction event as envisaged consists of the following steps which are indicated below.


e-tendering / Electronic Tendering / Web Tendering / Online Tendering is the simulation of the manual tendering process on the internet. i.e., the eligible bidders/ contractors can log on to the internet site specified using unique user name & password and place their Commercial bids. The eligible bidders will be trained by M/s Wipro personnel on the methodology of submitting the bids online. The bids placed by the contractors are confidential and will be opened by the authorised official using a special electronic key/ password, only after the date and time specified in NIT and not earlier than that.  No other person can gain access to the information regarding the bids, which is confidential in nature.


Closed online bid: The bidders are requested to upload their individual item rates based on the rates arrived at by them for individual item online during the date and time stipulated in the NIT.


Prior to opening of closed online bids on the scheduled date and time, reverse auction will be conducted on the date and time specified in NIT. Those of the eligible Contractors authorised by KRRDA, after opening of Technical Bid (first cover), will be allowed to participate in the reverse auction using their ID and password to place their best bids during the auction duration.


‘Online Reverse auction’ is a process in which the authorised Contractors can place their best bids (total amount) online within a limited time frame. In addition to already uploaded closed bids in electronic form, the online reverse auction will be conducted among pre-qualified bidders authorised by KRRDA. Such of the bidders are at liberty to participate in “online reverse auction”. During reverse auction process the bidders can react on the spot to the market trends and can offer their competitive bids. The bidders logged in will know the prevailing lowest bid at any given point of time but not the identity of the other bidders. The reverse auction process will start from a floor price fixed. During the reverse auction process the bidders can quote only lower offers than the floor price and they cannot quote above the floor price. The minimum bid decrement will again be pre-fixed. Any number of bids can be placed by the bidder during the time specified in multiple of decrement in the reverse auction process.


The bidders can place their bids from any place and what they need is a Computer with good internet connectivity. After the completion of reverse auction process the lowest offer will be firmed up.


The final lowest bid will be determined from among the closed Online bids and the lowest offer of the online reverse auction.


The bid would be submitted online by you while operating from your work desk in addition to the traditional paper means. All you need is a PC with a browser interface and an Internet connection.

Instead of a one time best price bid, you will now be able to interact and react on the spot to the changing competitive bids, thereby taking advantage of the intrinsic transparency in the whole process.

 As you can see, there are two very conspicuous gains in adopting this process as a transacting tool.

1.      Considerable reduction in demands on your time, which otherwise would have been spent on many price negotiations. This also will lead to quicker work order finalisation at our end.

2.      Complete Transparency in the involved numbers amongst the operating community, leading to sound decisions. 


We look forward to your enthusiastic response to this business opportunity and your active participation in the online tendering and reverse auction event.  We believe this process is futuristic and now a days, the future seems to be approaching all of us within days!



Hoping to see you soon on the Internet screen as well,


Yours sincerely,



Executive Engineer (Quality Control and Contracts)  

KSPHC, Bangalore
