The toxic RFP environment has been getting worse and worse, and it's reaching a critical point. Planners are complaining, suppliers are complaining, and something needs to be done, or the industry will suffer.
RFPsmart is not for profit. It's about making a change in this industry we love.
Please take the pledge, but more importantly, commit to modifying your RFP actions on an ongoing basis, whether you're a planner or a supplier. In serving the other side with respect, we earn respectful treatment in return, and the entire industry benefits.
It's about more than respect, though. It's about leveraging the wisdom and creativity we each possess. It's about infusing our RFPs and proposals with that wisdom again, and not relying on technology to be a substitute.

This is NOT about money.
Contrary to what some skeptics may assume, this movement is NOT about money. There are no sponsors, there are no fees, there are no profits or revenues generated in ANY way. This is a voluntary pledge, created and assembled with donated time, to affect real change in the industry. Period. Still skeptical?
