Your End-to-End Procurement Solution
Writing an effective request for proposals (RFP) is probably the most important step in the procurement process. It’s also one of the most challenging. There’s more to an RFP that just whipping up a few questions and sending it out into the world. There’s a science to creating an RFP that will attract vendors who can meet your requirements.
At DirectRFP®, we understand that not every organization has the resources to invest in learning how to craft an effective RFP. So in addition to our DirectRFP automation software, we provide managed RFP services — our team of experts will support your RFP development process every step of the way.

We’ve already built the world’s first RFP development platform, aimed at helping users create RFPs that attract precise, measurable responses from vendors that meet their criteria.
But the process is about much more than just the RFP itself. There are numerous tasks associated with procurement that you must handle either before or after you develop your RFP. And that’s where DirectRFP’s managed RFP services come in.
