Bidding on behalf of non exclusive agency member

if a business manager bids on a project on behalf of non-exclusive agency member, will that "non-exclusive agency member" also be able to bid on the same project independently of the agency?



I am asking this question because, if a business manager of agency bids on a project and wins the project, the project is basically won by the agency and the money goes to agency. In this scenario, the non-exclusive agency member may also wish to bid on the same project so that he/she could win that job and all of the money goes to that freelaner without involvement of agency.

Hi Farooq,


Agency members who are non-exclusive can work on Upwork independently or as part of an agency. When the contract is with the freelancer as an agency member, contract payments are paid out to the agency. However, contracts independent of the agency are paid directly to the freelancer. Non-exclusive agency members have the option to submit proposals as a freelancer or as an agency member.
