An article by Mike Durand, Director of Ghafari’s Healthcare Practice, appeared on the Healthcare Facilities Today blog. In the article, titled “Four Decisive Steps to Optimize Your RFP for Project Success”, he offers advice on how project owners can develop Request for Proposal documents that are clear, comprehensive, and informative.

“When the RFP leaves the proposing A/E firm guessing about the true objective of the project, the proposing firm has no clear indication of how best to align expectations of their services in response,” he writes. “It is more advantageous if the request document states the problem and explains how the proposed project fits into the client’s bigger picture. If it includes key pieces of information, it will elicit an informed, sophisticated proposal and give the client an opportunity to select the best-qualified A/E firm for the project.”
