    Default RFP responses

    Hi everyone,
    I could not understand what the person who wrote the following meant by "with RFP responses due"
    Does anyone know what RFP stands for in this email? I've found many different meanings, and I don't know which fits in it.
    Could you please help?
    Many thanks.


    "Thank you for your e-mail. Unfortunately with RFP responses due this week it was not possible to obtain Willis legal approval to the changes you requested to the confidentiality agreement in the time available, nor would it have given you sufficient time to review and respond to our proposal."

    Hi carla guaraldi,

    RFP is a standard abbreviation for Request for Proposal.

    Hi Monticcelo,

    "Therefore for this particular RFP regret we will not be able to send you our proposal. However if we have other similar opportunities to present we move forward into 2009 we will be definitely in touch with you."

    Does RFP regret mean that they didn't our proposal?
    many thanks

    Based on what I can understand, your company asked for the company that asked for the proposals to make changes to the confidentiality agreement. That company said they wouldn't have time to make those changes in time for your company to submit the proposal.

    I don't know if they needed you to sign a confidentiality agreement before you got to see the request for the proposal, or if they would sign the confidentiality agreement as part of the information your company submitted.

    Either way, your company didn't like the confidentiality agreement, which put your company out of the running to bid on this project.
