Posting an Opportunity:
From the Opportunities page, you can create opportunities by selecting 'Create Opportunity' above the 'Posted Opportunities' section. You can choose to create an opportunity, event, or co-op/employment posting based on the relevance to your opportunity.
Once you have selected the type of opportunity that you wish to post, fill in all information relevant to the opportunity. If you have selected 'Create an Opportunity' you will be able to select the specific type of opportunity that you would like to post. For example, whether you are looking to post a Request for Proposal (RFP), Request for Information (RFI), Expression of Interest etc.
Under the recipients section of the 'Create an Opportunity' page, you can adjust who will be able to view your opportunity. For instance, you can limit the opportunity by country, choose to send it directly to specific organizations or send it to a shortlist of organizations that have been associated with a tag in OMX. By selecting the SAP Ariba checkbox, you are able to share your opportunity with the SAP Ariba network, allowing it to be bid on by a network of networks of suppliers globally.

When you are finished adding all of the necessary information to your opportunity, you can can click either 'Save as Draft' to continue working on your opportunity at a later time or 'Publish' to allow suppliers to start bidding on your opportunity.
