Where and how to find new web or technology RFPs

There are two ways to find new RFPs as outlined below:

1. Manual Search

2. Subscribe to RFP resources

1.Manual Search: 

There are various ways to find an RFP manually through Google search and on social media sites using Boolean search and other search parameters. The Boolean search allows you to limit and define your search options to get accurate results.

For an example assume I want to search new website RFPs through Google search engine. My search text would as following:

“website” + “request for proposal”

and I’d select region in advance search setting to get RFPs from a specific region and use the Tools filter to show results available from past week or past 24 hours.

The above search parameters using “[text here]” implies that the text in-between the inverted comma must be there in the search result in the exact format and text as provided.

The same theory applies when you search on various social media including LinkedIn and Facebook. The former is widely used by the NGOs and other private organizations to market their RFPs.

2.Subscribe to RFP Resources:

There are various paid RFP resources and professional bid service provider in the market, but there are only true free RFP listings that provide information on the new RFPs free of cost; RFPCLUB.COM (RFP Club) and RFPDB.com (RFP Database). The later however is based on credits that you can earn through uploading a unique RFP or through purchasing the credits.
