How to Write an RFP

, Antharia University: more than just the web

RF...what? Writing and RFP/RFQ (request for proposal/quote) can be tricky and pretty time consuming. But a simple review of the basics should allow you to hit the ground running. In this lecture-style class, we will look at the basics of requirements gathering, what goes into an RFP/RFQ, vendor distribution, and reasonable timelines. In this class, we will look at several sample RFP's, vendor selection processes, grading, requirement docs, and more.


This class includes course handouts. Students will also have 90 days of access to their instructor (via email) for questions and answers.


  • What is an RFP?
  • Core Elements of an RFP
  • Defining Project Scope
  • Do I need a requirements doc?
  • What should I expect from vendors?
  • How long should we allow for proposals?
  • Can I outsource RFP development?


Students in this class will take away the following key elements:

  1. How to collect requirements and format an RFP/RFQ
  2. Solid understanding of the elements and energy that goes into writing a good RFP/RFQ.
  3. Solid understanding on the difference between an RFP, RFQ and RFI
