The e-sourcing (e-tendering) application will display the closing date and time for this particular tendering exercise within the event. The close time will be the earliest point at which the HMRC nominated or a tender defined evaluation team member will be able to open and view the tender responses. Therefore, the opening time for tenders will coincide with the close date and time for the event and all tenders will become visible to the HMRC nominated or event defined tender evaluation team in any place that provides access to the e-sourcing tool/application at that time.
