Request For Information
RFI is the acronym for Request For Information.
A preliminary document that is used to gather general information about a vendor’s capabilities, products, or services. It is typically issued when an organization is in the early stages of a project or is exploring potential solutions and wants to learn more about the options available in the market. The main goal of an RFI is to collect high-level information that can help the organization narrow down its list of potential vendors and determine whether to proceed with a more detailed procurement process, such as an RFP or RFQ.
