Time & Cost Savings
We handle the entire RFP process for you, including everything from research and RFP development to contract management. As a result, your team can focus on other priorities. There’s also no need to worry about compliance requirements. Our RFP process has been validated by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) as being in compliance with generally accepted public procurement standards.
Need a lead public agency agreement? We also have you covered there.
By taking advantage of the time and cost efficiencies we offer, your staff is free to focus on the more important functions that help advance your institution’s mission and strategies.
