Negotiable RFPs (NRFPs) provide an alternative to the ‘Contract A-B’ RFP approach for public sector organizations. Collaboration and negotiations with potential business partners are possible through this new model. This workshop provides the background and details of the NRFP model of procurement. Participants will learn how it works with a walk through of an actual document. We will explore how it is constructed and how it differs from the Contract A-B type of RFP. Additionally we will provide insights on what you need to implement the model in your organization.
