Organizations often face pressing needs that they don’t have the internal expertise or resources to meet. As a result, they will contact qualified vendors to provide skilled services via a Request for Proposal (RFP) – a document that describes a project’s needs and asks for proposed solutions. RFPs include an organizational background, a short project description, project requirements and objectives, milestones and deadlines, questions and required information, along with contact information and submission deadlines. A well-crafted RFP can help ensure that qualified vendors will be contracted and the project is completed as planned.

Typically, an RFP process may include:

1.  Establishing project boundaries
2.  Identifying key stakeholders and advisors
3.  Talking to stakeholders and define project needs
4.  Writing the RFP
5.  Creating a scoring criteria draft
6.  Circulating the RFP

7.  Reviewing responses
8.  Researching novel technologies as necessary
9.  Researching vendors’ track records
10.  Scoring the responses and select a vendor
11.  Negotiating and signing a contract
