This assignment is designed to help you analyze the infrastructure design solution proposal process. The purpose is to see what the vendor is reading and understanding from an RFP that you may have written. In this assignment, you will select a Request for Proposal (RFP) from the 4 RFP files located at the top of this assignment page, examine it carefully as though you were a contractor or vendor considering responding to the RFP to provide goods/services, and then reply to a series of questions below.
After selecting one of the RFPs, carefully examine the RFP for content, thoroughness, and intent; then reply to all the questions. You will conduct your review from the vendor’s perspective.
Your assignment should be 3-4 pages in length (in APA format) and should answer all of the following questions. You are not required to use additional sources, but if you use any, please cite them.
1. Give a brief synopsis of the RFP including what goods/services are being requested and your assessment of the RFP for completeness, format, structure, and other general descriptors. Be concise but informative.
2. Can you clearly understand the need for this proposal? Are there any major concerns you see after reviewing the proposal? Is there anything that you think is missing from the RFP that should have been included? Is it missing important information or sections? Does it contain a timeline/schedule for completion? Are the evaluation criteria included?
3. Is there anything about the RFP that you really like or that provides details that would benefit your company in deciding on whether to bid or not?
4. Describe one major take away from reviewing this RFP. Don’t forget that you are doing this from the perspective of the vendor. This “take away” can be something related to the actual RFP itself such as its content, structure, or format or it can be related to a general take away on the proposal development process.
