The Request for Proposal (RFP) invites qualified suppliers to submit binding offers for a described project or permanent service. Even the formulation of the RFP and the management of incoming bids prior to awarding the contract to an IT service provider determine the success of a business relationship.
For RFI support, RFP management, procurement support or transaction support, Metrics has all necessary methodologies and market data to enable clients to select their optimal service provider. In this way, we ensure that our clients receive the services they require at prices and SLAs in line with the market:

How does an RFP become successful?
An RFP describes defined goals, the precise scope of a project as well as the schedule including most important milestones. In addition, there are potential risks as well as specifications for budgets, compliance and future suppliers.
