Project Response Review: Making Your Best Shot
How a community responds to inquiries from companies and site selection consultants is vitally important. Superior and complete responses win projects. Deficient responses loses them.
Inquiries often take the form of a request for information (RFI) and/or a request for proposal (RFP). The RFI is typically designed to narrow the field of prospective communities to a finalist group, whereas the RFP is typically used for finalist communities to determine how and what they will do to win the project.
Long experienced at advising companies with site selection, BBA can assist economic development organizations by reviewing past submissions to RFIs and RFPs, so as to produce better and more complete future responses in an organized and efficient manner.
All of this work can be done online should that be your desire.
If a community loses a project because it does not have what a company wants, that is one thing. Losing a project because of a poor response is quite another. BBA wants to help communities prevent the latter.
