Gov to English translation: Insight and thoughts from industry about what the government should buy and how they should buy it
What it is: Frequently, the government is behind industry when it comes to technological and business processes. So to help the government get smart and get the best solutions they can release an RFI which outlines:
1) What the government is considering buying
2) Why they are considering buying it
3) And how they are considering buying it
And industry can respond with thoughts to help the government craft, a better solicitation
Why you care? The RFI response is an opportunity to educate and influence the government in ways that make them more likely to win.
