Larry Kulchawik Authors RFP Template for International Projects
Over the past four years, Larry Kulchawik has developed an RFP template to enhance communication between international exhibit suppliers, or exhibit managers with projects abroad.
"Since English is the official language of our industry, the RFP template outlines key questions in English that provide the critical pieces of information needed to get your price estimate right the first time around," said Larry Kulchawik, Principle of Larry Kulchawik Consulting.
In addition to the English RFP document, 150 key words and terms are included in the template with translations into 12 different languages. All translations were submitted by IFES member companies working in our industry globally.
"Since most requests for a proposal are due tomorrow, it does not leave you much time to ask questions and waste valuable time assuming," continued Kulchawik. "This template helps to clarify any misunderstandings regarding KEY words that we all use in our industry. There is also a glossary with additional word translations at the end. Let’s face it, there is always a question, but with cleaner information we can at least give an estimate and stop wasting time if budget is unreasonable. In the end, it’s not what you say, but what you mean that matters."
