Request for proposal (RFP)

A request for proposal (RFP) is a project document that details the scope of work, contract terms, and bidding process and is used by an owner to collect bids from contractors on a project. A contractor would respond to the RFP by submitting a proposal detailing how they would complete the task and how much they would charge. In the construction industry, "RFP" stands for "request for pricing."
