Cutting the Red Tape: Performance Based RFPs

Conference Registration

Slow. Outdated. Costly. Complicated. Awkward. If you have used any of these terms to describe your request for proposal (RFP) process you are not alone. GFOA routinely hears from government employees and vendors about the challenges of issuing and responding to an RFP. At its core, an RFP should define a problem and request help to solve it. Attend this session to learn how to simplify the RFP process, improve your ability to write specifications, attract more competitive vendors, and reduce risk. Speakers will discuss how governments can use performance-based RFPs to focus on results and transform the relationship between operating departments, procurement staff, and the vendor community.
