6 steps to writing a better Request for Proposals, a primer

We believe strongly in Requests for Proposals (RFPs) as a tool for companies to find the best products and services at competitive prices, but also as an evaluation method for finding that elusive "best fit". However, too often the RFP process is run by people who have never experienced the process before, either from the issuer or vendor side, and essentially don't know what to say or what to ask. Our goal in this article is give you the basics that you might need to create your own RFP and run a RFP process without too much frustration. As an example we're going to use a small website redesign project (because that's what we do), but we hope you'll be able to extract the concepts you need for your own project.
