APPI Resources!

'A Planning Professionals Guide to Writing Requests for Proposals'

During the past several years, APPI has received requests from Institute members for a guide on how to write Requests for Proposals (RFPs) as well as an RFP template. In response to these enquiries, APPI commissioned a guide to outline the key considerations and the elements to be included in preparing an effective RFP.

This guide serves as a resource for members of APPI who are charged with the responsibility of writing RFPs as part of their planning duties.  For those members who do not have to write RFPs but rather respond to them, an appreciation for how and why RFPs are presented may be developed so as to respond to them more appropriately. Click here for a pdf copy of the guide.

The Northwest Territories Association of Communities has also created a series of RFP-related toolkits. For more information click here.
