This is the most time-consuming part of the process if done well
Complete transparency with well written supporting documents and a structured support and feedback process gives you the best possible chance of receiving excellent proposals that will achieve your objectives.
I’ll find a group of agencies that meet your criteria and present them to you for your approval. I will ensure you have a comparison and I will include agencies I know will be capable but you may not have thought about them (wildcard). Once signed off I will distribute your RFP with the agenda to the agencies directly.
At the onset of the process, I will speak directly to each agency and the schedule 2 meetings for agencies to ask questions and one further meeting for feedback prior to the submission of their proposal. I will direct these meetings on your behalf and feedback any questions that need your support in one batch to you to save you time.
Transparency and feedback
The process we identify and agree upon at the start of the project will include information on the judging criteria that we will apply to proposals and any presentations. I will advise agencies regarding this process and feedback details of your decision with scoring information for their records.
