Requests for Qualifications/Requests for Proposals
The University issues RFQs and RFPs for a variety of design and construction projects. Commonly, an RFQ is used to develop a short list of the most qualified development teams to compete in the RFP Phase.
For certain more specialized projects where there are a limited number of qualified entities all of whom are known to the University, it may be appropriate to issue an RFP to those entities, saving the RFQ step.
