Purchasing - Quotes, Bids & Proprosals

Understanding the Process

WITC uses a quote, bid, or request for proposal (RFP) process to obtain equipment and services. Quotes and bids are typically used for equipment, and RFPs are typically used for services. Quotes and bids are normally used when price is the only determining factor in selecting the vendor and there are specific requirements that must be met. The vendor who can meet these requirements with the lowest price will be awarded the quote or bid. RFPs are used to select a vendor based on various evaluation factors, not just price. While price will be important in the decision making process, other factors such as experience in the industry or technical college system are part of the overall score.
