CommunicationsMatch has partnered with agency search firm RFP Associates to launch what it says is the public relations industry's first online RFP and RFQ agency selection tools and customizable templates. Agency Select allows organizations to issue an RFQ or RFP to any of the 6,000 agencies and professionals on the CommunicationsMatch platform. Following a search to identify and shortlist communications firms by such filters as industry and communications expertise, location, diversity, or professional designations and memberships, clients using the service can customize a template RFQ questionnaire as well as an RFP document including scope of work, budget, and timeline. Once agency responses are submitted, the client organization receives an alert and may compare downloadable agency responses side-by-side in the CommunicationsMatch dashboard.
