Request for Information

Request for information commonly is a first step of sourcing process. It is conducted to collect market information and non-competitive data in order to qualify suppliers for a follow-up RFP events.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Request for Proposal

Request for proposal allows suppliers to get to know the Carlsberg’s requirements and expectations towards business needs. Participants are requested to submit their offers consisted of terms details and price indication.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                


E-Auction is a sourcing tool that focuses on price negotiations following a prequalification of suppliers’ capabilities and proposals. It is a dynamic online session where participants compete each other. To secure the smooth process of participation in e-auctions, Carlsberg gives the invited suppliers possibility to join the training session prior to official event.
