RFP Guidelines Help Deliver Capital Project Excellence

Thursday, August 9, 2018

The free document provides seven key steps for collaboration among stakeholders in developing a robust RFP. The accompanying RFP template is designed to help clarify project requirements and minimize costly misunderstandings. 

Convened by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the OpX Leadership Network’s new Request for Proposals (RFP) Guidelines for the CPG Industry and companion template ensure complete and collaborative RFPs.

 

“The OpX Leadership Network RFP solutions enable both OEMs and CPGs greater understanding of project requirements resulting in better outcomes for all stakeholders involved in the process of specifying and executing capital projects,” says Tom Doney, expert engineer, Nestlé R&D Transversal Technology Unit.

 

For consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies, achieving vertical startups of packaging and processing equipment lines consistently and effectively are imperative. After using the RFP guidelines and template, CPGs can provide the bidder with a high-level abstract of the project, requirements, purpose and a detailed timeline. In addition, information such as insurance requirements, technical and validation specifications, special contract needs, site drawings and safety standards are included in the template to assist in the RFP process.

 

The OpX Leadership Network was founded in 2011 by PMMI to ensure CPG companies and OEMs are well-connected and well-prepared to solve common operational challenges, make smarter decisions and achieve operational excellence.

 

The RFP guidelines, as well as other operational solutions, are available for free download at www.opxleadershipnetwork.org.
