Requests for Proposals: Making RFPs work for Nonprofits and Vendors

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


This session is for people who either purchases software and services as well as people who provide such things. RFPs are controversial, with good reason: a poorly written RFP does little to help the buyer or seller forge a successful transaction or engagement. We'll discuss what type of RFP works in what type of circumstance, and how you can use this formalized information transfer to establish good vendor/customer relationships and get what you need.   

Participants will walk away with: 1) A solid understanding of what a Request For Proposal is and what it should do; 2) Good tips on when to write questionnaires, how to gauge vendor expertise, etc; 3) Guidelines on when to and when not to request fixed bids for consultant work.
