What does RFP stand for?
Who writes the RFP?
Another part of writing an RFP is including questions for vendors to answer or address in their response. These questions can be things such as, “what is your strategy for website design,” or “what is your success rate at completing a project during the given timeline?” A higher-level executive may not have the best insight on what kinds of questions will help determine a good winner, which is why the best person to author an RFP is invested in the project and its outcome
