What are some ways to ensure that interested parties are aware of the RFI?

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

As a state agency with a history of serving a particular population or addressing a particular problem you probably have access to most of the interested parties. Some sources for reaching interested parties are: advisory groups, task forces that address the client population or the issue being addressed, professional organizations or professional publications. Private providers and other interested parties may also call state purchasing agencies for the services in which they are interested and let them know they are interested in participating in future RFI’s. Remember, placing a notice of the RFI on the PNS website is required.
