    Hello

    Would you please tell me which one of the following sentences is correct?

    2-Winner is not yet determined in the tender.
    3-Winner is not yet decided in the tender.

    And also:

    1-No date is yet specified for the tender.
    2-No date is yet determined for the tender.
    3-No date is yet decided for the tender.

    Thanks a million

    Say:

    A winner is not specified in the tender.

    OR:

    The winner is not specified in the tender.

    And:

    No date is specified in the tender.

    The tender is the bidding, so the winner of the tender has not not yet been decided would work better for me.

    Re: Winner is not yet specified/determined/decided

    What about " no date is specified/decided/determined for the tender"? which one of the options is OK?

    What's the context? In many contexts, the present perfect would work better. As standalone sentences, you could make a case for different verbs, but that doesn't mean they would work universally.
