Continuing on from my earlier posts: LMS Selection Presentation Reformulated LMS Selection Team and Stakeholders LMS Selection Process From several comments and from looking at my list of issues, I realize that writing a good LMS RFP is challenging and it's easy to make lots of mistakes. LMS RFP Resources John Theis wrote a dissertation on the contents of 25 RFPs submitted to an LMS vendor. But, what I see as the most common problem in LMS RFP documents are the requirements.

For example, we’ll want one easy way to issue a personal RFP, or to store and selectively share personal data on an as-needed basis. But there should also be more efficient ways for supply and demand to meet and get acquainted – ways in which, for example, individual customers eliminate guesswork by telling vendors exactly what they want.

Bigger is not better

Harold Jarche

I have worked on both sides of the RFP/Proposal & purchasing/selling continuum. The additional caveats ensured that only a few bidders could ever meet the mandatory criteria. However, most large corporations and government agencies write their requestes for proposals (RFP) in such a way as to exclude small operators, thinking that they are mitigating their risks. Common business wisdom used to be that nobody gets fired for buying IBM.
