Selecting Financial Software for Your Association or Nonprofit Organization

When the time comes to select new financial software for your association, nonprofit, or government organization, you can’t always rely simply on accounting software reviews to ensure you make the right decision. Selecting new technology for your association, nonprofit, or government organization takes much more than that; and, although a request for proposal (RFP) is an effective tool for selecting financial software, it doesn’t always predict compatibility – especially when it’s a fund accounting system for a nonprofit organization. Nevertheless, creating an RFP can be an effective way for an association, nonprofit, or government organization to determine its needs and to quickly obtain answers about accounting software systems and suppliers.

What is a request for proposal (RFP)? 
The request for proposal (RFP) is an invitation to a group of vendors to submit proposals for goods or services to be purchased in the near future.
