Qualified bid

The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) Glossary of procurement terms, defines a qualified bid as: ‘A bid where the potential supplier has ‘exempted themselves’ from one or more of the requirements of the tender (i.e. the bid specifically states that it does not comply with one or more aspects of the specification or contract terms).’

See also: Non-compliant tender.
