Request for proposals

Request for proposals are competitive proposals when the nature of the procurement does not lend itself to sealed bidding and the recipient expects that more than one source will be willing and able to submit an offer or proposal.

Specific considerations

  • Bidder input needed for specification
  • Two or more responsible bidders willing to compete
  • Discussion needed with bidders after receipt of proposals, prior to award or basing the contract award on factors other than price alone
  • Fixed price can be set after discussions
