Request for Proposal (RFP) Help Center
Most large proposals are written in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP). An RFP will generally tell you what the customer is interested in procuring and provide instructions regarding how to prepare and submit your proposal. In addition to RFPs, some organizations publish a Request for Information (RFI) when they need information prior to issuing a solicitation, and some publish a Request for Quotation (RFQ) when all they are interested in is the price.
Government procurement is highly regulated, and therefor government RFPs have a particular format and structure. Commercial RFPs do not have to follow the same rules, and can be anything that the company publishing the RFP wants it to be.
