[Koha] HELP!!! Need RFP specifications

Does *anyone* have any procurement documents that they can share?  Your RFP
or RFQ or RFI....or whatever you used to make a decision about which product
and which vendor/service provider you were going to go with.

I'd love to look over some copies of what has worked for people.  I have my
recommendations but I'd like to see what has actually worked in the field so
I am sure to be steering other libraries in the right direction!


P.S. If you can share them for their content but you don't want any
"personally-identifying information" shared about your institution, I am
happy to do some scrubbing.  I'd like to come up with a template that people
can use.  And I'd share it with everyone if I can get some help from those
who've gone through it already.
