For record keeping purposes, Bonfire allows you to track which vendor was awarded a contract under a project. When a vendor is marked as "Awarded", the vendor is NOT automatically notified of the award. This feature is strictly internal.
To mark a vendor as awarded you first need to mark the project as Completed (in the project header). Once marked as Completed, scroll down to the Submissions section, locate the Actions button, and click on Award.
Fill in the reason for the Award.
When finished you'll see a star next to the Awarded vendor. Note, that multiple vendors can be marked as awarded (as in the case of an RFSQ for example).
If a vendor was awarded by mistake, repeat the steps above. Instead of Award, under the Actions menu, you will now see un-Award.
