The world of formal tendering is full of buzz words and acronyms. Formal opportunities come with all sorts of labels. These can be broken down into those where you are invited to pitch for contracts, and those where, at this stage, they just want information from you.
The TLAs used include:
ITT – Invitation to Tender
PQQ – Pre Qualification Questionnaire
RFI – Request for Information
RFP – Request for Proposal
RFQ – Request for Quotation
