Many requests for proposal (RFPs) for physician services completely miss the point by laying out what is expected and setting out strict performance standards, such as “the contractor will cover X sites from 7 am to 7 pm.”
By doing so, they assume that they know the best way to provide the service. By doing so, they force, or perhaps foolishly fool, potential medical groups to respond as if the requirements set forth in the RFP are actually optimal for the facility.
