What is an IT tender?

A tender in general means that a client draws up an assignment and invites various parties to submit a quotation for the execution of that assignment. The parties submit an offer with price information and other information that would apply if they were to carry out the contract. The client then decides, on the basis of the quotations received, to which party he awards or awards the assignment.

An IT tender concerns companies that need certain software for their business operations, describe an order for this and ask software suppliers to quote this order.
