24.5 Preparing an RFP

24.5.11 Supplier’s obligation to understand RFP content and specifications

When suppliers sign and submit a proposal, they are communicating that they have read and understood all of the content, requirements, terms and conditions and specifications of the RFP. Each proposal should include an intent to contract statement that is signed by an authorized representative of the supplier stating their understanding of this obligation. Make sure these requirements are clearly stated in the proposal requirements section of the RFP.
