RFI (Request for Information) is a document issued in order to find out whether or not the supplier has the products or services that meet the expectations of the RFI issuer at their disposal.
What is RFI used for?
RFI is used when the requestor needs to get more information from a supplier such as information about products, services, capacities, or other prospective supplier’s limits. RFI can be considered a simplified form of RFP. The results usually serve for the elaboration of RFP or RFQ as a next stage.
