RFP 101: 5 Critical Components of a Standout Submission

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending hours reviewing, writing and submitting a response only to find out you lost another RFP opportunity. Your Economic Development Organization (EDO) puts time (if not hours) into each proposal. So, if your hard work isn’t paying off as often as it should, it may be a good time to explore what critical components make up a standout submission.

Behind every winning RFP response is an EDO team. And you’ve learned with years of experience, creating compelling and engaging proposals is a learned skill. Not only does it take time and practice, it also requires a bit of trial and error.

On GSLI’s next Master Series Webinar, we’ll discuss the top 5 critical components to a successful RFI. Based on our experience of reviewing thousands of proposals with corporate clients, we want EDO’s to walk away with a set of takeaways they can implement in their RFP response process. We will review submission packets and help you see into our RFP review

Looking to increase qualified lead flow, submission feedback and project conversations? We've got the solutions and we're ready to help.

PRESS RELEASE: Covid C.A.R.E. Response Program



GSLI Launches COVID C.A.R.E. Local Business Response Program for Communities.

DALLAS, TX (3/26/2020) – Global Site Location Industries (GSLI) is ramping up efforts in supporting local businesses and the domestic economy by utilizing a new set of tools found in its technology toolbox. Companies capable of adapting their technology through the crisis are doing so at a record pace as leading automotive giants are now churning out respirators instead of automobiles all while whiskey producers scramble to make hand sanitizer to help meet demand. GSLI is doing the same thing for local businesses.

“Responding to local businesses leaders’ questions and concerns will be more critical than ever now. Doing so effectively is a monumental task for many understaffed Economic Development offices, yet doing so will be the difference in local businesses keeping their doors open or closed and laying off hundreds or even thousands.  We’ve reengineered our Artificial Intelligence product to meet these demands,” stated Eric Kleinsorge, CEO and Chairman of Global Site Location Industries. 

The GSLI COVID C.A.R.E. (Coronavirus Automated Response Effort) Local Response Program takes a unique approach in supporting communities and their efforts in responding to local business concerns by utilizing AI response systems. This integrated system Records, Responds, Alerts, Prioritizes and Completes requests from local businesses that need information and answers from, many times, understaffed Economic Development offices. Instead of fearing this change, the GSLI team linked arms and stepped up to the challenge. From receiving requests and concerns to automated feedback, request prioritization, and system follow-ups, the GSLI Response Program offers an integrated system of checks and balances that captures every request.

“We have been in the business of helping communities attract new jobs and now it’s our turn to help communities keep these jobs,” Kleinsorge concluded.
