A mysterious cloud surrounds request for proposals making them appear opaque and difficult to understand.  Let alone engage in.  Many procurement professionals see RFPs as a method of last resort.  However, just because RFPs are less familiar to procurement professionals than other source selection methods it does not mean that RFPs
are difficult or should be avoided.
This webinar provides an introduction to the newly consolidated RFP Best Practice. Professionals new to this source selection method should successfully transition from the ‘black and white’ approach of low bid awards to using a more subjective and flexible RFP process.  
As an added bonus, learn when and where the application of professional judgement is important in the RFP design and process.  Whether you are a new or seasoned public procurement professional, join the #RFPDreamTeam in an engaging discussion about the newly consolidated RFP best practices. Don’t miss it!

1.  Basic knowledge of how and when best RFP can be used in their entity
2.  Awareness of the various RFP components and process
