What is RFX?

RFx is a collective term that encompasses various procurement-related documents, including Request For Proposal (RFP), Request For Quote (RFQ), Request For Information (RFI), and other similar requests. The "x" in RFx represents the variable component that can stand for different types of requests depending on the specific procurement needs.

RFx documents are used by organizations to engage with potential suppliers or vendors for various purposes. An RFx document outlines the organization's requirements, expectations, and criteria for evaluation, depending on the type of request.

RFx processes help organizations streamline their procurement activities, gather information, compare supplier responses, and make informed decisions based on their specific objectives, whether it is to obtain proposals, price quotes, or general information about potential suppliers.
