Procurement Examples & Resources
- Difference Between RFP and RFQ
- A Request For Proposal (RFP) is an open request for bids to complete a new project proposed by the organization that issues it. It is meant to open up competition and to encourage a variety of alternative proposals that might be considered by the organization. Any questions that have been asked by vendors needs to be shared with other vendors (using email or updates on a public notice (church website). This includes the process/end result the organization desires.
- A Request For Quote (RFQ) also known as an invitation for bid (IFB), is a process in which a organization chooses select vendors and/or yourself to negotiate on what they will do and negotiate the price for the chance to fulfill certain tasks or projects.
