Pooki's Mahi uses a standard high-tech RFI process to evaluate suppliers and vendors. Pooki's Mahi's RFI process does not constitute a PO or contract to do business with the supplier or vendor.
Pooki's Mahi has a very strict and highly selective process.
- Less than 10% of the target suppliers or vendors make it to the RFP stage.
- Pooki's Mahi's RFI process is designed to obtain all information (including reference checks) to determine which suppliers or vendors will be invited for the actual pilot, a key QA/test activity in the RFP stage.
