How far in advance of issuing an RFP should we conduct an RFI?

Posted on Jan 7, 2014 in Health and Human Services.

The RFI is for the purpose of obtaining community input whenever an RFP is developed. Depending on the information you are seeking, when the RFP is held may vary (see:  How often should we conduct at RFI?). Generally, we have found that RFIs held between 2 and 9 months prior to the notice for an RFP tend to be the most useful.
