What are the differences between an RFP vs RFQ vs RFI?  While they may seem similar, a request for proposal (RFP), a request for quotation (RFQ) and a request for information (RFI) all have different definitions and serve different purposes within the procurement process.

The difference between the RFP, RFQ and RFI is what information they provide:

  • An RFP compares — RFP responses evaluate the merits of each vendor compared to others
  • An RFQ quantifies — RFQ responses provide the cost of meeting a specific need
  • An RFI educates — RFI responses explore how a vendor might solve a problem or fill a need
