  1. Hi Don,
    I usually run RFP for companies. I had my own decision group matrix, but I lost after a computer crash. My point is if I can adapt your work for my needs and use during my tenure in some companies understanding that the template is for public use ? It will not be the same template at the end but will have yours as a base. Also I would like to use your process description.
    Please let me know if that will be ok.
