RFP 101: 5 Critical Components of a Standout Submission

Published: July 1, 2021

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending hours reviewing, writing and submitting a response only to find out you lost another RFP opportunity. Your Economic Development Organization (EDO) puts time (if not hours) into each proposal. So, if your hard work isn’t paying off as often as it should, it may be a good time to explore what critical components make up a standout submission.

On GSLI’s next Master Series Webinar, we’ll discuss the top 5 critical components to a successful RFI. Based on our experience of reviewing thousands of proposals with corporate clients, we want EDO’s to walk away with a set of takeaways they can implement in their RFP response process.
