  • What Your Nonprofit Needs to Know Before Requesting a Proposal for ICT Services in Africa

  

Just like any other business, nonprofits need to be strategic in how they spend their money. One of the best ways to do this is by creating an internet service request for pricing (ISRP) in Africa. This document will help you compare prices and get the best deals on internet services. Follow these ten steps to creating your own Internet Service RFP!

  1. Define your scope of work: what type of internet service do you need?
  2. Research your options: look at a variety of providers and services.
  3. Get quotes: request quotes from providers that fit your needs.
  4. Compare prices: compare the prices of the different providers.

  5. Make a decision: decide which provider and service is best for you.
  6. Sign a contract: once you've decided, sign a contract with the provider.
  7. Set up service: follow the provider's instructions to set up the service.
  8. Test the service: make sure the service is working properly.
  9. Use the service: start using the internet service for your nonprofit!
  10. Monitor the service: keep an eye on the service to make sure it's working well.

Creating an ISRP is a great way to save money on internet services for your nonprofit. By following these ten steps, you can get the best deal possible on the internet service that you need.

To recap, an RPF is a unique opportunity for your nonprofit to get creative and put forth its best foot with the common goal of being selected to provide Internet access in Africa. While the process may be daunting, following these guidelines will give you the best chance at success. Good luck! And if you have questions or want to strategize together, schedule a call.
