Request for Information

What is a request for information?

A request for information (RFI) is a formal document or process that companies use to collect information from potential vendors. This helps companies understand the capabilities, products, and services offered by different vendors and obtain information that can be used to develop a request for proposal (RFP).

RFIs typically include a set of questions that the company wants the vendor to answer. These questions can range from general inquiries about the vendor's business and expertise to specific questions about the products or services they offer. RFIs may also include a request for the vendor to provide additional information, such as references, certifications, or case studies.
