How do I find a supplier?
top
Once you have posted a project for bidding, suppliers will find you. To help choose the right person for the job, you can review profiles and feedback from other project sponsors.
You can also search our directory of suppliers by skills, feedback ratings and location and invite suppliers to bid on your project.

Please note: The directory of suppliers is the property of iWebManage Limited and cannot be copied and iWebManage is not liable in any way for the choice of supplier made by the project sponsor.

Can I change the standard supplier/client contract?
top
Yes. A standard contract is provided as an example. Because some projects require additional safeguards (forexample, to protect intellectual rights, or stipulations on performance or quality), the agreement can be amended accordingly. You can either do this yourself or have it amended at your own expense by your solicitor/lawyer.

How do I resolve a dispute?
top
Even though iWebManage takes no responsibility for the contracted work between a supplier and project sponsor we will do our best to help you resolve any issues that may arise. Whether the problem is for incomplete work; the inability to contact a supplier or project sponsor; or simply that you are not happy with the end result, you can contact iWebManage who will help to resolve the issue. If that fails, you can follow up with the following services at your own discretion: A Mediation service through the British computer society, an Arbitration service or the Courts.

How many projects can I bid on?
top
As many as you like providing that you can honour any that you win.

It is important to note the proposed start and end dates of the project information and to make sure you are qualified to complete the work to a high standard.


Does the lowest bid always win?
top
Not necessarily. The project sponsor has a choice to accept the lowest bid if they wish, however they also have the option to view all potential supplier portfolios before making the final decision. For instance, location may be of prime importance to the project sponsor and could be the deciding factor.

How do project sponsors know where I am?

When you register, your details are used to plot your location on our suppliers map. The supplier map can also be used by the project sponsor as another method of finding a supplier.
