The major sections of the RFP template are: > Overview: A description of the project’s objectives plus any additional background about the organization or business objectives that may provide the vendor with additional useful perspective. > Administrative: Contact information that the vendors will need to prepare and submit their proposal as well as major dates associated with the RFP submission, evaluation and award process. > Current Environment: A description of the existing recruiting environment including common characteristics, business requirements and any information that will provide the vendor with a better understanding of the company’s hiring strategy.

    • Overview PURPOSE OF THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL ABC Company is a provider of specific products or services to types of customers in the industry. It has facilities in approximately number locations within the United States, as well as several other locations in Europe and Asia. ABC Company is interested in conducting a workforce management solution assessment that will allow the company to: > Streamline, automate and improve corporate hiring processes > Determine if the current wireless network is configured securely. > Evaluate the security associated with public self service web applications that are used by ABC Company’s customers. > Provide line items that summarize the scope of the work required ABC Company is seeking to identify and select an outside independent organization to provide a solution for the concerns listed above. The remainder of this document provides additional information that will allow a vendor to understand the scope of the effort and develop a proposal in the format desired by ABC Company.

    • Current Environment Recruiting Statistics 1. Total Number of Employees 2. FTE Recruiters 3. Total Number of Hiring Managers 4. Number of Internal Hires (Job Changes) Per Year 5. Number of External Staffing Vendors (Agencies / Search Firms) Used The following are common characteristics of the recruiting environment at ABC Company: • A multi-faceted approach to recruiting is required in order to meet joiner demand across our different workforces segments. Describe different segments and approaches. • While there are many similarities in the recruiting process for each profile, there are some steps which are unique to particular geographies (e.g. personality test, language test, skills test, group case study). • English is the global language of ABC Company which all employees are/are not required to speak, write and understand. However, to the extent possible, our recruiting organization communicates with candidates in their local language. • The global recruiting organization needs to be positioned to quickly respond to shifts in joiner demand, and is evaluated on both the accuracy of demand forecasts and their ability to deliver according to those forecasts within a x-day period. • The recruiting organization is evaluated against operational efficiency metrics, including cost-per-hire, time-per-hire and insert key metrics here. Greater utilization of channels (sources) such as the Internet, Employee Referrals and Alumni is encouraged, as well as reduced reliance on Search Firms. • Fragmented local recruiting systems result in a varying level of reporting accuracy at a higher level. Production of a global recruiting report is administratively intensive and requires interaction with multiple systems in addition to manual data collection from the geographies. • Responding to miscellaneous requests for information (i.e. not part of regular reporting) is manually intensive • Both the internal and external candidate experience in searching for and applying to jobs is fragmented and sometimes requires multiple steps. There is an opportunity for significant improvement in this regard. • Duplicate resume/CV receipt to the same job and/or same country is typical and has no centralized or efficient solution. • Some geographies rely on an external system to warehouse candidates into segments and run automated communication programs. • Provide additional items that describe existing processes [www.ABCCompany.com © 2004 ABC Company All Rights Reserved | 6
