A good Request For Information (RFI) will help your client evaluate potential software development partners in a more time and cost-efficient way. It will also help ensure that the chosen one can deliver the project and understands it’s business goals and requirements.

RFI is usually a replicable 3-to-5 page document that provides an executive summary of what the project to be outsourced is about, along with details on each vendor’s specific capabilities.

  • gathering information in a formal and structured manner that will enable easy comparisons.
