Answering predefined question, is a quick process for vendors, and in exchange their participation, we give back the result all answers (anonymously) so they can see their own position, from others.

We also put those questions under ‘Creative commons’ BY-SA so we can improve them with others organisations, vendors, or consumers, or associations...

By the way, we still have RFP, but that is: “We select your organisation following previous RFI, thanks to send us your proposal”. That is mostly enough because we already ask the main questions, and don’t need any more information.

Currently, our ‘digital study organization’ ICT-a.ch is able to process a standard RFI for 500 €.
