    I feel so stupid sometimes, I really did spend some time searching for this, and nothing of the sort appeared in the results. All I got were definitions for the word 'tender' and nothing for the rest of it. Thanks @Ronald. – RǢF Feb 5 '15 at 10:00

    @RǢF In the future, try limiting your search results by placing word-for-word searches in quotation marks. 'Tender on a bid' will search Google for the words 'tender,' 'on,' 'a,' and 'bid.' '"Tender on a bid"' will only produce pages with that exact phrase. (Do not type the apostrophes - you get the idea.) – Adrian W Feb 5 '15 at 10:31
