To respond to an RFQ on behalf of an RFQ recipient.
If you have had correspondence with an RFQ recipient outside of Procore and have received their schedule or cost impact for the change event, you can respond to the RFQ from the Change Events tool on their behalf.
Things to Consider
- Required User Permissions:
- 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the project's Change Events tool and 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the Commitments tool.
- Added to the Privacy drop-down menu of the Commitment, and listed as an assignee of the RFQ.
- There are two different types of users who could respond to an RFQ. The subcontractor can respond to the RFQ, or a GC can respond to an RFQ on the behalf of a subcontractor (if they discussed the quote outside of Procore). See "Respond to an RFQ as an RFQ Recipient" in the See Also section below.
- Only RFQs with the status Out for Pricing or Revise & Resubmit can be responded to.
