Paper Abstract

The preparation of an explicit Request for Quotation (RFQ) and the subsequent hardware procurement by contract very frequently can: a. effect significant cost savings b. provide both technical and executive training for the engineers involved c. aid a company in meeting overall hardware development schedules To achieve these advantages, the RFQ package must contain a technical specification which documents the hardware requirements in terms of performance, and a work statement which structures the entire procurement by specifically defining the required tasks, schedules, mutual responsibilities, and criteria for hardware acceptance. A simple, easy-to-follow method for preparing Performance Specifications and Work Statements is described for the guidance of engineers wishing to achieve the many advantages of contract procurement.
