What is schedule of requirements (SOR)?

Can somebody provide me with a detailed information on what is a schedule of requirements (I have an idea on what it is, but I'm not quite sure that I understand what it means correctly).

Also, should I enclose the schedule of requirements in the envelope in which I put the bidding form?

In project management, the schedule of requirements is a document used in the procurement process. For example, let's say that you want to start a bidding process for the materials needed for your construction project. So, you create a schedule of requirements (or SOR) document. The SOR consists of all the products needed for your project, the quantity of each product, its specifications (The world bank has an excellent article on the schedule of requirements here: http://web.worldbank.org/WBSITE/EXTERNAL/PROJECTS/PROCUREMENT/0,,contentMDK:20062747~pagePK:84269~piPK:84286~theSitePK:84266,00.html ).

As for your second question, yes, the schedule of requirements should accompany the bidding document.
