Distribute Your Security Consulting RFP / Security Request for Proposal
If you are seeking the services of an independent security consultant – someone who is not affiliated with any product or service they may recommend – then you have come to the right place for your security project. The security advice they render is focused on the best interest of you, the client.
To assist in preparing your security consulting request for proposal (RFP), IAPSC has various resources and guidelines for you to review prior to submitting your security project RFP. Once you are familiar with these, you may use our easy online distribution tool (links at the bottom of this page) to post a security RFP to be sent out to our security consultant members for the security project or security services you are seeking.
Taking time to prepare your security consulting RFP before posting it is important. Here is a list of what you will need to have ready in order to complete steps of the security RFP submission process:
- Collect any files or documents you wish to attach. You may upload up to five files each under 25MB in size and in .pdf, .doc, or .docx format
- Begin using the online tool by submitting your RFP, enter your contact Information, RFP #, RFP title, issue date, and due date
- Submit project purpose/objective, background, project description/ scope of work
- Specify deliverables and procurement timeline
- Specify your project budget
- Specify whether a site visit is mandatory, if security clearance is needed, and if so, what level?
- Specify if a format has been established for the RFP response and if yes, provide information
- Finally, click “Submit” and your RFP will be sent out to IAPSC members to respond
Our security consulting RFP distribution service is comprehensive and designed to facilitate an easy, quick, and smooth process in finding a qualified security consultant to fit your specific project or service needs.
The more information you provide about your organization, the higher quality security proposals you will receive and the less time you will spend fielding questions.
In addition to the on-line form, we suggest submitting:
- an actual RFP document if you have one
- a detailed budget if you have one
- any images, floor plans, or other visuals you have
- any other documents that might help explain the scope of work or any special requirements
An actual security project RFP document will give a broader overview of your organization and its history and the other documents will aid respondents in being able to tailor their proposals to meet your needs.
To allow the security consultants adequate time to provide the best response to your RFP, and account for any clarifying questions that need to be asked, please allow 3-4 weeks for a response.
Upon posting your security consulting RFP to the IAPSC website, a notification will be sent directly to our IAPSC members. Individual members will contact you directly if they are interested in the opportunity.
