I received a request to kindly post this RFQ. Why not?
Ignore the due date on the RFQ PDF; the quotation is due 23 April 2012. That's plenty of time!
Water is vital to a productive and growing economy in the United States, and directly affects the production of many goods and services. Under contract to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Water, Industrial Economics, Inc. is seeking proposals from independent experts for the development of papers on (1) water’s contribution to the U.S. economy, (2) current capabilities to analyze and estimate this contribution, and (3) the steps necessary to improve our understanding of water’s economic contributions. The papers are to be presented at a technical workshop to be held in September, 2012 in Washington, DC.
Please distribute this email and the attached documentation to anyone interested in submitting a proposal. Interested parties should review the accompanying request for quotes, which provides additional detail on topics of potential interest, and submit proposals in accordance with the RFQ to email@example.com. Proposals are due no later than 5:00 pm Monday, April 23, 2012.
