When should you use an RFP or an RFQ? Smart companies use a Request for Proposal (RFP) or Request for Quote (RFQ) to find the best pricing and the right vendors. An RFP process can be used even for small purchases, and using RFP templates and step-by-step procedures mean that the process does not have to be labor intensive.
