Does responding to a Request for Proposal (RFP) for government agencies fill you with dread? Trust me; you’re not the only one!
What is an RFP?
A request for proposal (RFP) is a business document that announces a project (usually a complex one that requires many subcontractors), defines it, and outlines the bidding process and contract terms. Most private companies and organizations prefer to launch their projects using RFPs, and they are the standard for many governments agencies.
When using an RFP, the organization requesting the bids takes responsibility for evaluating the feasibility of any bids submitted, as well as each bidder’s ability to undertake the project.
If you don’t really know where to start when responding to RFPs and want to better understand your chances of winning a solicitation, then the NYC Department of Small Business Services PTAC’s upcoming workshop, Responding to RFPs, is for you!
Using an actual Request for Proposal (RFP), this workshop examines the tools and techniques for responding to RFPs from government agencies and will cover topics such as:
- Targeting Opportunities
- Identifying Key Dates, Timelines, and Procedures
- Meeting Requirements for Minimum Qualifications
- Understanding Proposal Evaluation Criteria
- Creating Proposal Content
- Required Forms and Attachments
- Post Proposal Submission Follow-up
The webinar will be held Wed, February 16, 2022, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST, and spots are limited – register while you still can!
