Once you are familiar with the resources and guidelines that we have provided, you may use our online tool to post an RFP through the AMC Institute website for full-service management or outsourced services.

Taking time to work with your Board/governing body on preparing your RFP before it is posted is important. Many organizations develop a search committee to help oversee the process. It is vital to be able to share your current situation and where your organization is headed. If you would like to view suggestions on the search process for an AMC, reference our Recommended Search Process Steps information.

AMCI's RFP program is comprehensive and designed to facilitate an easy, quick, and smooth process in finding the perfect AMC to fit your needs. The more information you provide about your organization, the higher quality proposals you will receive, and the less time you will spend vetting questions. The RFP program was created by AMC owners and guides you in providing all the necessary components an AMC will need to formulate a proposal. 

AMC Institute's RFI/RFP Process

1. Association decides it wants to explore AMC services.
2. Association fills out RFI on the AMCI RFI Portal.
3. AMCI Reviews RFI and sends out to AMC members.
4. Interested AMCs will fill out the AMC Profile and email back to the association.

Based on the information received, association will decide if moving forward with an RFP is the best option.
If yes, association will need to decide between Full AMC Services and Outsourced AMC Services, and complete the RFP as needed.
Once RFP is submitted, it will be sent to AMCs who will create and send service(s) proposals to association.
