How to Write an Effective RFP

Writing a request for proposal (RFP) or request for information (RFI) is exactly what it sounds like. You submit requests to vendors asking for detailed proposals before deciding which one wins your project. A well-written RFP provides a clear, complete understanding about the wants and needs for your agency. Vendors want your business and can submit their best proposal if they understand the project’s full intent. Do not skimp on the details.
