No-Cost Higher Ed Survey Tool RFP Resources

In 2017, changes in the higher education survey tool market led a number institutions to vocally consider a re-evaluation of their current survey tool strategy and provider(s). This re-evaluation trend has grown and, for many, it also includes a determination to seek and to share information about competitive alternatives. In response, we have teamed up with Orlando Leon, CIO at Fresno State University and Charlie Moran, CEO of Moran Technology Consulting to create a freely shareable set of Higher Education Survey Tool RFP resources. Our goal was clear: to make this process faster, easier and most effective for everyone involved, including the vendors themselves. These customizable resources include:

  • Detailed requirements
  • Request for Proposal template, including general questions
  • and a Pricing Form

You can download those files here. We claim no ownership of them, so feel free to use them as you wish.

Our Position, Policies, and Practices

We are 100% vendor neutral.

We have no stake in, or benefit in anyway from, a selection outcome.

We never reveal vendor response data without permission from the vendor.

We do not claim ownership of any client, consultant, or vendor data entered into DecisionDirector.

We never sell or otherwise distribute any of the data entered into DecisionDirector.

We have many consulting partners who have integrated DecisionDirector into their planning and selection methodologies, and their baseline requirements and other information into the DecisionDirector database.

Clients are free to use our baseline library or that of their chosen consultant, or a combination of both.

Vendors may establish baseline requirements of their own in DecisionDirector, for clients and prospects that wish to start with those.

We do whatever we can to help clients, consultants, and vendors be successful in using and benefiting from DecisionDirector, but we never provide unfair advantage or share inside information about the projects we support.

We hold all conversations in full confidence and do not discuss or share sensitive or competitive information.

We are committed to creating and supporting the best practices that lead to the best possible outcomes, and therefore are always open to constructive criticisms and suggestions.
