DRC Training Session: RFIs

EDCUtah’s Development Ready Communities program offers training on key components of economic development, including the site selection process, RFIs (Request for Information), and incentives training.

At the most recent RFI training session hosted by EDCUtah partner Layton City, participants left the session with these key takeaways:

  • A painfully short time frame to respond to a RFI is not intentionally inflicted by EDCUtah. Time is dictated by the requesting site selector and EDCUtah gives local communities 80% of the timeline allotted to respond.
  • Site selectors are looking for reasons to eliminate locations. Communities must put forth their best efforts in response.
  • First impressions count. A concise and substantive cover letter is key.
  • EDCUtah depends on our community partners to provide current and factual real estate responses.
  • EDCUtah receives an average of seven community responses for each RFI sent. Always respond! Increase your chances on a win!

Learn these things and much more at our next RFI training session.

The full schedule of trainings can be found here. Through these training programs, EDCUtah will work with its public partners statewide to enhance Utah’s economic development efforts.
