The Request for Proposal (RFP) application involves multiple steps which allow managers/directors to create and customize a master template for a funding opportunity. This tool is configurable by the manager or director to collect documents needed for the solicitation. RFPManager is flexible and supports an SOI submission period and a proposal submission period or the manager can configure the tool to skip the SOI submission period and only require that full proposals be submitted.
The RFP Lifecycle typically consists of the Statement of Intent (SOI) submission period which allows applicants the opportunity to express their interest in funding. Once the SOI submission period has ended directors then invite reviewers to review and rank the submissions to determine which ones they will invite to submit full proposals. In the proposal submission period, applicants are invited to submit the required documents for the solicitation. After the proposal submission period ends, directors then invite reviewers to review and rank the proposals. Finally, directors gather the reviews, evaluate them and decide which proposal submissions to fund.
