Build a Request for Proposal (RFP)
Your RFP will communicate clearly and consistently to all participating agencies what you need from them in order to select an agency. In addition, it will provide agencies with information about the search that will enable them to determine if they would like to participate in the search and then provide a response that meets your needs. When you are ready to draft your RFP, click on the Build Request for Proposal tab above.
Try to align the requirements of the search with the size and scope of the scope of work you anticipate for your agency. Agencies are generally prepared to invest necessary resources to compete for a new client. By disclosing the anticipated size and scope of the assignment at the outset, you can assure the participating agencies that the investment required to participate in the search is proportional to the potential return of gaining you as a client.
