Respond to an RFQ



Responding to an RFQ consists of three main tasks. The Contract manufacturer has to:

  1. Review the RFQ (Retrieve BOMs and check the Bill of Materials).
  2. Upload price and supplier data.
  3. Input Non-recurring Expenses and'Manufacturer’s Value Add.

Each of these tasks involve a number of sub tasks that will be explained in the subsequent chapters. Once the contract manufacturer has completed his response and submitted his quotation, an e-mail will be sent to the primary IBM contact ( Buyer) who submiited the RFQ.
