As the Project Manager, I would pursue a RFP.  At this point in the process, I would be requesting for competitive proposals on exactly how many technicians it will require to install and configure the proposed software (The DataWarehouse RFQ, 2008). This would give each vendor a chance to submit their best proposal for fulfilling this portion of the project, along with other portions, but would not require the RFQ because I want to gather information from vendors regarding their ‘take’ on how many and how long this portion would take.
