The RFP process consists of four phases. This self-paced course takes students on a journey through the four phases: Gathering Information, Preparing the RFP, Publishing the RFP, and Awarding the RFP. This version of the course includes a built-in project assignment that allows learners to demonstrate mastery of the topic. At the end of the course, students are required to take a 50-question assessment. In order to pass this course, students must score at least a 70% on this assessment. The assessment provides real-time feedback so learners are aware of how they scored. Learners can take as much or as little time needed to complete this self-paced course.
