It sounds like the situation is a matter of intent versus location.

Their intent is for the documents only to be used by business' bidding on contracts. However, the location and manner which they make the documents available says their intent is for the documents to be publically available.

Maybe, the first step for them is to decide which it is. Do they really intend for the documents to be publically available? Or do they need to choose a location and manner of access that is in line with their stated intent.

That might make the rest of the decisions easier--or at least reduce the amount of debate.
