Get to know useful project contacts within your client and supplier organisations. This will save you lots of time and will improve the efficiency of your projects and reduce the difficulty in getting the information or decisions you need.
Short RFP/RFQ/RFT response times reduce the quality of project proposals and ultimately increase project costs. Reduce the chances of this happening by allowing sufficient time for companies to prepare quality proposals.
At the start of your project, ensure you ask the client what kind of reports they want. Automate or standardise your client reports if possible. Ask the right questions to get the best results for you and for the client.
