This means, Org Admins can then control who has access to those individual tenders and can also control which of those individuals will or will not have access to the quotes relating to those tenders.

All your organization’s nominated administrators will have full access to all tenders, automatically.

This feature is available for Platinum account holders only.

As an organization administrator for your organization's account, to determine how to create a tender and select users within your organization that will be granted access to the tender – please refer to the article titled ‘Restrict who has access to your tenders within your organization.’
