PROJ 410 Week 3 Discussion Questions

PROJ 410 Contracts and Procurement – DeVry


PROJ 410 Week 3 DQ 1 RFP Requirements

Consider again the dream retirement home that you were building as part of the Week 2 discussion.  Assume you are working on the request for proposal to be bid on by some local general contractors.  Using the outline of the RFP sections discussed this week, what are some specific questions or areas of detail you would put in your RFP?  What are some ways you’d tailor your RFP to make sure you knew if the local general contractor you choose will meet all of your success criteria?


PROJ 410 Week 3 DQ 2 RFP Evaluations
