Course Description
  1. Overview

    This course is uniquely designed to prepare procurement professionals to use the Request for Proposals (RFP) process to its maximum potential. The class agenda will identify the process, offer a key understanding of the elements of the proposal, and ascertain ways in which the document can be used to its full capability. Pitfalls and success stories will make the class relevant and applicable when planning to incorporate this type of solicitation into the government process. Practical examples, discussion, group exercises, and case studies will be used throughout the course.
