What is a Request for Proposal (RFP)?
A Request for Proposal (RFP) within the construction industry is a comprehensive document that outlines the specifics about a particular construction project. It's a call to bidders, helping interested contractors and construction firms understand the project details, timelines, expectations, and criteria for selecting the winning bid. An RFP in the construction industry typically includes information such as project scope, schedule, required materials, budget, and other relevant factors. It acts as a formal invitation, allowing companies to bid on the project by proposing a plan that meets or exceeds the listed requirements. This inherently ensures competition, dedication towards the job and best value for money for the project owner.
