A tender, or quotation, is an invitation by a buyer to perform work or provide goods at a specific time. The process can be detailed and structured for large corporate buyers and government agencies, or it may simply be an exchange of information for smaller buyers. The tender is often won by the lowest-priced offer.

Today’s digital age has made it easy for government agencies and private companies to find suppliers online. A majority of government agencies have also set a goal of 25% annual procurement to the MSME sector as part of their support for MSMEs.
