RFP and RFI Services
Request for Proposal (RFP) processes have changed since 1980’s. The complexity, interconnectedness, and corporate need for documentation and rigour in the decision process also have been changed.
Request for Information (RFI)
We prepare RFI to be sent to a broad base of potential suppliers for the purpose of conditioning, gathering information, preparing for an RFP or RFQ, developing strategy, or building a database about:
» The suppliers, including: facilities, finances, attitudes, and motivations
» The state of the supply market
» Supply market dynamics
» Trends and factors driving change
» Alternative pricing strategies
» Supplier competition
» Breadth and width of product/service offerings, by supplier
» Supplier strategic focus, business, and product plans
Our clients will be gain tremendously through these RFI responses such as strategic options, lower cost alternatives, and cost reduction opportunities.
Request for Quotation (RFQ)
We prepare RFQ to be sent to potential suppliers containing in exacting detail a list or description of all relevant parameters of the intended purchase, such as:
» Personnel skills or competencies
» Part descriptions/specifications or numbers
» Quantities/Volumes
» Description or drawings
» Quality levels
» Delivery requirements
» Term of contract
» Terms and conditions
» Other value added requirements or terms
» Draft contract
Price per item or per unit of service is the bottom-line with our RFQ's. We assist clients by comparing and analyzing each of these RFQ responses. Our RFQs are typically used as supporting documentation for sealed bids.
Request for Proposal (RFP)
We prepare RFP to be sent to potential suppliers with whom a creative relationship or partnership is being considered. Our RFPs typically reflect the strategy and short/long-term business objectives, providing detailed insight upon which suppliers will be able to offer a perspective. If there are specific problems to be addressed in the RFP response, those are described along with whatever root cause assessment is available.

While specific data, offerings and quotations may be sought, questions about the following will make up a significant portion of both an RFT an RFP:
» The specific items on which the suppliers are proposing
» Business requirements
» Performance measures
» Information
» Ideas
» Instructions on how to reply
» Due date
» Scope of work
» Evaluation Criteria
» Request for cost breakdown (sometimes)
» Communication: cover letter (sets the stage), calls in advance
» Who to contact with questions
» Addressee - chosen carefully
