WBEA is committed to connecting women-owned businesses with corporate, state and government opportunities. Therefore, this webpage is designed to provide our members with the tools, education and information regarding available Supplier Diversity Events and Bid Opportunities or Requests for Proposals.
A Request for Proposal (referred to as RFP) is an early stage in a procurement process, issuing an invitation for suppliers, often through a bidding process, to submit a proposal on a specific commodity or service. The RFP process brings structure to the procurement decision and allows the risks and benefits to be identified clearly upfront. The RFP may dictate to varying degrees the exact structure and format of the supplier's response, so be sure you read all documentation carefully.
Lastly, the creativity and innovation that suppliers choose to build into their proposals may be used to judge supplier proposals against each other. Keep in mind that when submitting your proposal, it may be best to include your “One- page Wonder” marketing/ advertising tool. This is an introduction of your business to the corporation or prime contractor you’re seeking to do business with.
For assistance with submitting a proposal, or if you are a contractor wanting to advertise your bid opportunity on the WBEA website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
