For some people, creating a RFP can be an exciting experience unmatched in the annuals of time. When people need a RFP, they think “Internet&#. As in, let me see if there is one on the Internet, I can use as my RFP. It is a time saver, but pulling down a RFP, especially if it comes from a vendor’s site (even if that is not the vendor you are going to submit it to), can define your approach, without you even realizing it.
