The Requests for Proposal (RFP) is a great tool for buyers to find the best products and services at competitive prices. But if the potential provider/supplier misunderstands the parameters of your RFP, the proposal will most likely come back with solutions that don’t meet your objectives. All too often, buyers fail to create a good RFP by providing the supplier with the necessary information to submit a comprehensive offer. This may not only prevent buyers like you from getting the best solution and pricing package, but also lead to contractual problems later due to the RFP’s vagueness.

This session by industry expert Kenneth Jones will cover creating a vendor data base and creating a qualified vendor pool for an RFP. In addition, the program will cover ways to get better qualified vendors using an RFI and vendor responsibility review processes.  Samples of RFP terms, technical scoring and cost evaluation will be covered as well. Attendees who complete the program will leave with tools they can use the next time they are faced with creating a qualified vendor pool for an RFP.
