TCIC Featured Course of the Month
Responding Successfully to a Request for Proposal 

More and more frequently private sector companies and government organizations are releasing RFPs as part of their procurement process and moving away from the traditional bid process. Construction companies often win or lose contracts based on their responses to an RFP. Answering a Request for Proposal (RFP) effectively requires knowledge, understanding and a proposed solution of the subject, while convincing the potential Owner that your company is the best suited to build their project.
Through case study of an actual RFP and the development of an RFP response this 2-day course will cover: 

  • An overview of the RFP process and comparisons with other procurement types.
  • Analyzing company SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunity and Threats)
  • Determining “GO/NO GO” 
  • Building the Winning Team
  • Analyzing Owner RFP requirements
  • Developing Win strategies
  • Proposal development and submission
  • Risk and Opportunity analysis
  • RFI strategies
  • Presentation techniques
