As a general contractor, you can filter your bidder search by labor requirement when inviting subcontractors to projects.
To filter by labor requirement
From the bid package you would like to invite bidders to, click “Invite Bidders” on the “Bidders” tab. If you have not set up bid packages yet, please reference the article, “How to add bid packages to projects.”
Enter a work performed keyword if there is not one already populated by typing a trade in the “Work Performed” section then clicking on the keyword that populates in the drop-down menu.
Adding a work performed keyword will populate “best match” companies in the center of the “Invite Bidders” window. Best matches are chosen based on trade, location, activity, and past work relationships with your company. For more information on how “best matches” are chosen, please reference the article, ”How does BuildingConnected choose 'best matches' when inviting bidders to projects.”
You can filter bidder search by labor requirement by selecting and deselecting the options under the “Labor Requirement” section such as union, non-union, and prevailing wages. Please note that labor requirements are established by subcontractors when they set up their accounts.
Companies matching your selection will appear in the center of the “Invite Bidders” window.
From here, you can invite bidders by clicking “Invite” next to individual names underneath a company.
Click “Show More” to view all individuals within a company.
You can invite as many individuals within a company as you would like by clicking “Invite” next to all names.
Please note that if your project is published, clicking “Invite” will send an invitation to bid to all bidders invited to the bid package. For more information on inviting bidders to projects, please reference the article, “How to invite subcontractors to projects using the ‘best match’ feature.”
