How Do I Search the Private Database?

The private database has structured data about live and historic RFx activity for the subscribing organization. Only users from the organization can see this data.

Last updated February 2021.

Who Is This For?

The repository of private data spans live RFx they are working currently in EdgeworthBox; RFx they have issued in the past along with the responses they received and the vendor they selected; and contracts they have signed. It is highly confidential. This is a way of sharing market intelligence within the organization's procurement team, but also across the enterprise to people from the C-suite, finance, operations, product, and marketing.
