Soliciting proposals from vendors to support projects can be a time-consuming process. The Request for Proposal (RFP) document is critical to determining the quantity and quality of proposals you’ll receive.

We provide varying levels of support from RFP development through to full turnkey management of the entire process, including proposal review, vendor shortlisting, and selection support.

|RFP Evaluation Criteria Development: Help identify and measure key criteria that will allow you to objectively rank vendors.
|RFP Proposal Review: Review and feedback of proposals based on mutually developed evaluation criteria that will provide with an objective analysis and ranking of all proposals.
|Vendor Shortlisting: Inspect all proposals, provide you with our detailed ranking, and provide you with a shortlist of vendors to help you reduce the time it takes to vet out and select a vendor for a project.
