I'm in the process of learning how to create a rfp. It is part of a course I'm taking through my work. Have no idea how to even attempt one.

To be able to do that you need first need to identify the key sections you should include in the Request for Proposal. You would need to define and understand the below:

- Reasons for the new solution

- Description of your organzation

- Nature of the project

- Contract, information needed from suppliers, Proposal evaluation criteria, Contract award criteria

- Selection process timeframe

Sections of an RFP can be a collection of the below:

- Statement of Purpose

- Background Information: a brief overview of your organization and its operations

- Scope of work

- Standards: outcome targets, minimal performance standards expected

- Deliverables

- Term of Contract

- Payments / Penalties if any

- Terms and Conditions

- Requirements for Proposal

- Evaluation and Award Process

- Process Schedule

- Contact Details

Hope the above helps.

You are part of the systems design team for a new interface system. Your task is to gather information for software that fits the interface design.
Integrated system is used to convert manually input data into reports for the hospital. Basically, this means new printers, new computers, a dedicated server and software for the server, software for the data input , reporting software, and production software (such as the Microsoft Suite) will be needed.
You realize at this point an RFP is the appropriate way to get the information and software needed.Task:Your draft should include:a. Purpose for RFP
b. discussion of the hardware,
c. discussion of the software, and
d. organizational issues presented in chapter two..This is all the information i was given to complete this task.
