Supplier Diversity Initiative Support

As a part of growing Once Upon an RFP, we talk with a lot of Supplier Diversity and Procurement Teams.

Because of our specialization in RFP-based proposals, we hear a lot about your frustrations.

“We can’t meet our goals with the suppliers that approach us.”

“We were close to closing an agreement with a diverse supplier. Then we learned they didn’t renew their certification on time.”

“Most diverse suppliers don’t understand what we need from them to work with our organization.”

We understand your challenges because we’ve been in your shoes.

Prior to Once Upon an RFP, we worked in large corporations and had to engage small and diverse businesses as subcontractors for RFP responses.

We rarely got exactly the information we needed after the first or even second request.

And we never received the information from them by our internal deadlines.

We frequently ended up having to do a lot of the work ourselves, presenting it to the diverse subcontractor we wanted to engage for approval.

Today, we’re on the other side of the equation – we’re a diverse supplier and a very small business.

We now experience the same time and resource challenges that our former subcontractors faced.

We also support clients facing the same challenges with their RFP responses.

We’re here to help you and your diverse suppliers succeed.

Examples of how we can support you include:

  • Reviewing solicitations for clarity and ease of response.
  • Creating RFP response templates to streamline the process for your diverse suppliers.
  • Training your diverse suppliers in how to achieve as a diverse supplier for your organization.
  • Delivering Capability Statement and Proposal Workshops.
  • You can also sponsor a diverse supplier’s work with us.
