Developing an RFP for Your Radio System Upgrade or Replacement
- A radio system upgrade or replacement project does not need to be daunting or overwhelming
- Obtaining a new system through the request for proposals (RFP) process allows agencies to select a best-of-breed solution, ultimately yielding better results
- Any RFP should have the same standard elements, but not customizing your RFP to your project could result in proposals for unnecessary work, extra costs and, ultimately, a project that does not meet goals or expectations
In this whitepaper, we discuss the benefits of going through the RFP process at the start of a project and outline the standard elements of any RFP. In addition, we walk you through the five-step process of RFP development to ensure a project that meets your agency's goals, budget and timeline.
