The N-PBS Scheduler considers any crewmember who has submitted a Current or Default bid a bidder. Bidders can be eligible or ineligible.
Eligible bidders are awarded a block and ineligible bidders are not awarded a block of any type.
Any crewmember who is eligible to bid but has not clicked the Submit All button to submit a Current or Default bid is automatically given the standard system-generated default bid. All crewmembers are processed in seniority order.
