Whether you are requesting a proposal or responding to a proposal request, the pitfalls in construction bidding are ripe for disaster. Unclear and conflicting documentation, incomplete scope, nearly impossible schedules, and a whole host of other issues can cause problems when preparing and evaluating proposals. If the price is too good to be true, then it probably is! Even if the schedule is unreasonable, someone will submit a price to do the work within the schedule – whether it is possible or not. Regardless of the delivery method, in construction it’s highly likely that at some point you will be on both sides of the bidding game – as an owner, contractor or supplier – either selling or buying services and products. And each time, that product or service will be unique, requiring a unique, customized RFP or RFP response that addresses the individual requirements of the project or service.
In this session, expert speaker Eileen M. Englert will explain how to create and evaluate RFP’s. You will learn common pitfalls in scheduling, proposal evaluation techniques and tips for getting the best response.
