...Golf RFP has launched a beta version of its Request for Proposal (RFP) website designed to connect golf groups with golf courses through a simple bidding process. This is the golf industry’s first online solution that addresses the group business segment. Golf RFP is a free service to any user, golf organizer or meeting planner that completes an online profile. Once the profile has been completed, the user may submit a Golf RFP for one or multiple days of golf, up to seven consecutive days. Users will then receive offers from golf courses interested in earning the group’s business. “We put the power of the sale in the hands of the golf course. It’s up to each individual course if they want to bid on the RFP and how aggressive they wish to get in hopes of winning the business,” said Gary Lorfano, Golf RFP founder. The website is now accepting memberships from golf courses looking to join the Golf RFP network of courses. Each membership type requires an initiation fee. Fees range from $600 for a Member Club and $1,000 for a Premier Club, which includes special advertising benefits on the Golf RFP website. “Today, a golf course relies significantly on group business and that is where Golf RFP will focus,” said Lorfano. A former Tournament Coordinator while at the Marriott Orlando World Center and current owner of Entertainment Solutions Group, a golf centric sports and entertainment company, Lorfano understands not only what the golf courses need, but how to best assist...

What Is a Rfp

...How to Write an RFP for e-Learning Services Including a Customizable RFP Template What is an RFP? How can you narrow the list of possibilities before contracting for services? How can you ensure that your organization’s business needs will be met? One solution is to write and distribute a Request for Proposal (RFP) in the marketplace. An RFP is a document produced by a company seeking goods and/or services and distributed to prospective vendors. Vendors then provide proposals based on the criteria specified within the RFP. A well-written RFP will outline specific information about your organization, the services and products you need, and the specific requirements suppliers must meet in order to win your business. It forces your to identify your business and technical requirements. It also forces the vendor to state in writing to what extent they can meet your requirements. A written RFP increases market awareness of your organization’s needs, thereby increasing the competition to serve those needs and increasing the formality of the relationship between you and the supplier. In short, an RFP places you—the buyer—in control of the desired service levels and related requirements and lets potential vendors know up front that your most important concern is the level of customer service you will receive. Reasons to Write a Formal Request for Proposal • To increase competition for your organization’s money, which will increase the options and potentially could drive......

...Request for Proposal Template A carefully crafted "Request for Proposal" (RFP) is the key to getting the best quality services you require for your project. This tool provides you with guidance and a template for preparing a good RFP. Instructions: 1. The Request for Proposal (RFP) is your "official" statement to vendors about the services you require. Vendors typically try to respond, point by point, to your RFP when they make their proposals. Therefore, the RFP "leads" vendors by focusing their attention on certain issues. In addition, it shapes their first impressions of your training development group and the project to be completed. Most importantly, the RFP is the foundation upon which the vendor's relationship with you is built. 2. For these reasons, the RFP must be carefully crafted and reviewed before distributing it to vendors. 3. This template below provides some suggestions for the contents of an RFP. REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL TEMPLATE A TYPICAL RFP The typical RFP includes the following sections: I. The General Training Goals This section includes the general business goals which are met by the new product or process on which the training will be based. In addition, it describes the key components of the new product or process (how it works) and compares these to existing products or processes with which vendors may be familiar. II.
