Advice:

Decide whether your organization desires electronic, hardcopy or both RFP submissions. Also provide both a contact person for vendors to point out inconsistencies as well as a vehicle for providing further vendor response. We generally recommend posting vendor responses to a web site page so that all vendors have equal access and can refer to the web page upon demand.
