Going to market for a new ICT partner? Here’s a useful RFP template with step-by-step instructions
If you’re about to go to market for a new ICT partner, you can increase your chances of making a good selection by starting with our free RFP template.
Written with non-IT people in mind, the document is full of time-saving tips that will help you produce a professional-quality briefing for potential service providers and save thousands on the cost of a professional RFP writer.
If you want, you can go ahead and download it now. There’s no form to fill in.
For best results, don’t shortcut the process!
You will see from the first few pages of the document that we advocate a four-stage RFP process:
- The initial release and shortlisting of potential respondents via an Expression of Interest
- Receipt and evaluation of written responses. Creation of a shortlist of potential partners who will be invited to make final submissions
- In-person presentations, declaration of preferred provider
- Negotiation of contract and final decision announced to all parties.
If you follow this process you will give your organisation a chance to be exposed to both the written and in-person capabilities of the selected provider(s) and the opportunity to negotiate the best price for the selected service.
