BestBidz EPR FAQ's
Cost: TCA's BestBidz Electronic Plans Room (BestBidz EPR) is an annual service offering unlimited access to project opportunities throughout the year. Please note printing charges do apply for printing requests. Please contact plans room staff for more information and pricing.
No hidden fees: For accessing projects posted by TCA, our BestBidz EPR service will never cost you more than your annual service fees! Other electronic-plans-room providers who charge both annual and monthly fees often don't include all of their fees upfront (hidden fees) - this often results in additional fees for access to certain projects. Furthermore, with no guarantee that a project is actually relevent to your line of business (and no option to preview), you may end up purchasing quite a number of irrelevant projects from these other providers.
Relevance: Other electronic-plans-room providers do not tailor content - we do that with our "Request Project Posting" feature! If there’s a project missing that you’re interested in, you can request it by contacting Klaire Flores at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 416-499-4000 ext. 4109. (Certain conditions may apply.)
Abundance: We handled annually over 2000 projects with 678 corporate users and 4,680 individual users. Since 2000, TCA's Physical Plan Room and BestBidz EPR has handled over 18,000 projects in total.
Efficiency: Our BestBidz EPR service is all about quality control! Before any project is uploaded onto our BestBidz EPR platform:
- Specifications are divided in accordance with the Master Format
- Drawings are sorted by type and listed with helpful descriptions
- All files are uploaded in PDF and TIFF formats
Our tender documents are always presented in a consistent format offering a user-friendly experience to our members.
Searches: As a BestBidz EPR member, you are able to use a "keyword" search tool that allows you to search through all projects to find your specified trade. As an example, if you are in the flooring business and run a search with the word "flooring," the return result will be all projects that have flooring specified. Similarly you can run a keyword search within the specs of a project. For example you can search inside Division 9 for "epoxy."
Technical Requirement: Windows XP or newer and Internet Explorer 7 or a more recent upgrade. In order to view the documents online. Disk space will be based upon 1 MB (roughly) on each downloaded drawing.
