This resource overview provides best practices for engaging with law firms or service providers when you are procuring services and products. An RFP, Request for Proposal, is the preferred way that most companies procure services and products from external sources. An RFP is a document that describes a project’s needs and asks for solutions from qualified vendors. It is a tightly structured process whereby an in-house legal department evaluates a number of law firms, or service providers, who have submitted proposals to obtain legal products, services, or advice from the company. A well crafted RFP is designed to understand the capabilities of different companies when selecting a firm, or provider, to provide a solution, or service. Legal departments send out RFPs for different types of work and projects and each operates somewhat differently from the others mostly due to timing issues and scope. Here are common examples of when a legal department may request support from an external source.
