Purpose of a Request For Proposal

The purpose of having a structured Request For Proposal or RFP is to control the response from the various data centers and have them respond in a consistent and orderly fashion. By creating a standard format, we can easily compare, evaluate and make logical, non-bias decisions on the selected colocation facilities. By issuing an well-organized RFP, DataCenterAndColocation can leverage our client’s purchasing power to secure the lowest possible colocation cost while ensuring the highest quality data center providing services. This process of a well-defined RFP, demonstrates to the data center providers that our clients are serious about moving forward with a colocation transaction and not just shopping with a loosely worded description of services. It is a tool to inform the data centers this is a very competitive environment and to offer the best possible pricing early in the process. It also provides our clients with a documented factual response to requirements and pricing. The RFP sets the stage for an equal comparison and negotiating position with the data center providers.
