RFQ Cover Letter

RFQ Cover Letter

RFQ Cover Letter:

RFQ Cover LetterA RFQ cover letter or request for quote cover letter can take on many appearances. It can be anything from a simple hand written fax cover page to a formal business letter style template.  A RFQ cover letter is also known as an invitation to quote letter and like the RFQ cover letter, it is used to connect the buyer and supplier. It usually requests price and delivery for a product or service requirement. For a sample Request for Qualification cover letter go to bottom of this post.

Your cover letter should include an issue date, buyers complete business address, subject – RFQ for ____, your offer (quote on supplying, etc), an acknowledge by date,  reference to an instructions page, possibly a reference number, may include some background details, where, when and to whom the response must be addressed to and finally, close it with your signature and title.  The following is

Payment Terms Defined

Payment terms are an area in the RFQ process which is often overlooked or forgotten. Some commonly used payment terms would be Net 30 days, 2%/10 Net 30 days and there are many more.  (To help  get a better understanding we have included a glossary of payment terms you can download for free at the bottom of this post). So, what do these imply and is it something a Buyer should be paying attention to as part of the award process?

When generating a RFQ or RFP, most buyers will place the majority of their efforts on the product, FOB Point and other commercial aspects of the quotation and doing such is absolutely right but one evaluation point which is often overlooked or not considered in the overall award process are the payment terms. Buyers will often accept or assume the standard Net 30 days offered is not worth analyzing.

Purchase order Terms and Conditions

Purchase Order Terms and Conditions:

If you are looking for a BASIC Terms and Conditions (TC’s) template to use with your purchase order, the following set will get you going. If you typically do not include a set of TC’s with each purchase order you fax, email or transmit to your Suppliers, at the very least you should have each Vendor sign off on your TC’s and have them agree that all future purchase orders they fulfill will be bound by such TC’s.

These days digital storage is a cheap commodity so you can have the Vendor sign off on your TC’s and store the documents by way of pdf for future reference. This will give you some  peace of mind, necessary back-up and also allows you to avoid having to transmit them with each purchase order you issue.

FOB Point

FOB Point:

Lets talk about shipping terms and where the responsibility lies for a shipment.  The correct definition for FOB Point is Free-on-Board aka freight on board and the term FOB is often misunderstood, even by the professionals.

The FOB point is important as it ascertains:

  • when legal title of the goods being shipped transfers to the buyer. Say you were purchasing a bulk liquid like a fuel or a chemical, the FOB point could be origin, destination, buyers tank or even the intake nozzle at point of delivery.  As you can see, depending on the commodity, having the proper FOB point is crucial.
  • who is responsible for handling damaged goods or freight claims with the carrier in the event they are lost or damaged during shipment. An example: FOB Destination, Freight collect means: Buyer — Pays and is responsible for freight charges, Seller — Owns goods in transit, Seller — Files any damage claims (if any). Another potential headache area so choose wisely.
  • who pays the carrier.

Many will suggest or argue that FOB destination is the most beneficial because
