To create a Request for Information (RFI) using the project's RFIs tool
In the construction industry, the RFI process is an important one and is commonly used on construction projects of all sizes. In simple terms, and RFI is a technical query that represents a formal question asked by one party on a contract that is answered by the other party on a contract.
A example of a common scenario on a project that triggers the creation of an RFI is when a supplier or subcontractor needs more information from the project architect or engineer about a construction document. For example, a project drawing might be unclear, a requirement may be ambiguous, or a product specification may be inferior to another option.
(Note: If the Specifications tool is enabled on the project, the selections in this menu are populated with the spec sections from that tool, and it will display as a link upon saving the inspection. If the Specifications tool is disabled on the project, the selections in this menu are populated with values from the project's Admin tool.)
