Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

Support issues related to jobs listed in Fencebids

So, wrong addresses, incorrect email addresses, broken links to a specific job, incorrect phone numbers are, for the most part, beyond our ability to fix.

The government, however, often corrects broken links very quickly, so if a link is broken, click on it again in an hour or so because it could be fixed. Same with incorrect email addresses, and so on.

By September, bids can rarely be converted to awards in the old budgets, and the number of bids go way down. In October, the agencies do not yet have new budget priorities set. By November, things begin getting back to normal. It happens every year.
