RFP (Request For Proposal)

Back To Glossary

What is an RFP?

Request For Proposal (RFP) is a formal document that organizations use to solicit detailed proposals from potential suppliers or vendors when they are considering a significant purchase or project. The RFP outlines the specific requirements, objectives, and expectations of the project or procurement and invites qualified suppliers to submit comprehensive proposals.

Typically, an RFP includes details such as project scope, budget, timeline, evaluation criteria, and specific questions or tasks that suppliers must address in their proposals. It allows organizations to compare and evaluate proposals from multiple suppliers to select the one that best meets their needs.

The RFP process enables organizations to make informed decisions, ensure transparency, and choose suppliers or contractors who can deliver the desired results.
