What is a Pre-Bid/Pre-Proposal conference?

The pre-bid/pre-proposal conference is a meeting held to discuss the specific Invitation for Bid (IFB) or Request for Proposal (RFP) document. This meeting gives you the opportunity to ask questions and to request clarifications in the documents. Pre-bid/pre-proposal conferences are held for most formal RFP's solicited by the City. The pre-bid/pre-proposal conference is usually not mandatory, but suppliers are strongly urged to attend.
