Contract / RFP Review Services

For a small investment, you can save hundreds of thousands in unplanned work and costly legal bills

Unbiased, independent review

As with any commercial relationship, setting clear expectations and defining roles/responsibilities for all parties concerned is absolutely key to the success of the engagement. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, especially with complex development and platform engagements. In particular, activities relating specifically to quality assurance and testing are often vague or even missing – resulting in poor quality software being delivered. 

Contract / RFP Reviews Explained...

Avoid significant unplanned rework

Once a contract has been agreed, any subsequent omissions that are identified will no doubt be treated as a change request by the supplier or taken on as an additional activity by the business – either way this is unplanned effort and cost that should have been anticipated.

To help clients avoid this, ROQ provides a service to review any commercial documents – ideally pre-issue or pre-signature – such as Request for Proposals (RFP’) and contracts to identify and recommend changes to ensure that quality is built into the contractual deliverables and that evidence will be provided to demonstrate it.
