Writing a request for proposal (RFP) is the first step to getting a new technology integrated into your organization. When a company is in need of a technology installer to come in and design or install a new system, the process of finding the right firm can be daunting. Depending on the complication of the build, choosing the right firm could mean choosing a partner to work with for years to come. The firm needs to have the right system in mind, they need to understand the needs of the company and the end users that will use the system, and they need to complete their work with certain quality, monetary, and temporal constraints.
A request for proposal, in essence, communicates to installers the expectations that an organization has for a system that they need. A technology RFP can include a range of different specifications, from exact number of items that will be needed, to specific design necessities, to general operation requirements with little or no information on how those requirements will be met.
