New Feature - Straightforward Tender Document Downloading    22 Jul, 2003

The SA Tenders & Contracts website NOW allows you to easily download tender specification documents to your PC and upload tender responses using standard HTML technology, which does not require the use of the Java TM Applet.   

This now provides you with the choice of downloading tender documents and uploading tender responses using either a Java TM Applet or HTML method.

Retrieving files using the regular download method (HTML) without the applet will require that you save the tender documentation to a location on your hard disk and then manually extract the tender documentation using a third-party tool such as WinZip.

Submitting files using the HTML upload method, without the applet, will require that you first select each of the files that constitute your submission from your hard disk, before submitting.  If you wish to compress files in order to reduce transfer time, you will have to do this manually using a third-party tool such as WinZip, then select the compressed file that contains your response.

The HTML upload method does not provide the same level of progress feedback in comparison to the Java Applet method.
