R.F.I.C. Mission Statement - Transmitting Success!
The Request For Information Community (RFIC) is a website focused on promoting partnerships with small businesses. Often times, small businesses are used as the façade by a large business to pursue small business set aside opportunities. RFIC believes it is vital for small businesses to form partnerships with other small businesses to win proposals and establish long lasting business relationships. This website will provide your company with the opportunity to respond to Request for Information (RFI), Sources Sought, Requests for Proposal (RFP) and many other avenues used by the government to partner with viable small businesses.
Much like a social networking, the RFIC web site will provide a questionnaire designed to match you with compatible small businesses for your specific area of expertise. RFIC will allow you to rate your experience with small businesses you have partnered with to assist small businesses identify suitable matches and partner with them for proposal development.
As an RFIC member, you will have access to a number of subject matter experts (SME), consultants, proposal writers, technical writers, graphic artist, lawyers, and other services necessary for Small Business success. Each service provider in the RFIC community has completed a profile to be used by small businesses to identify necessary business expertise. The resume and/or biography of each service provider is available to RFIC members for review. The service providers will also be rated by the community for all Small Businesses to review.
