One of the most important elements of delivering savings to an organization is the competitive bidding, or sourcing process. The request for proposal (RFP) drives this element. What is often overlooked in building an RFP is the collaboration needed to ensure that the winning proposal delivers the best overall strategic value. When done right, the RFP is much more than a cost savings exercise. Whether you use an RFP tool or other methods, this webinar will explore best practices in creating the optimal bidding scenario and a comprehensive request for proposal.

Your Benefits of Attending:

  • Understand the importance of the RFP as a strategic tool.
  • Learn what you should include in your proposal to ensure maximum value.
  • Gain insight in RFP formats - best practices for efficient and effective responses.
  • Learn how to set expectations for both stakeholders and suppliers and why that is critical.
  • Understand timelines and guidelines for a winning RFP.

An extensive list of spend categories means that one RFP template won’t be sufficient. However, with consistency in approach to building an RFP, you will not only develop a sustainable, efficient process within your company, but you will create broader opportunities to capture the best overall strategic value from supplier bids. You will leave this webinar knowing how to more effectively create RFPs based on requirements and areas of impact.
