Whenever you need a bid, it's right there with your personal data already filled in! Simply fill out the client-specific data, save a copy for your records, and send it. Quick & easy.

About completing the form... Possibly the single most important thing we need to know is whether the board has already identified the specific components they want included their study. Or, do they want a Comprehensive Scope reserve study which they can review, then tailor to fund only the items for which they ultimately determine to fund by means of replacement reserves. So, it’s important to click one of those two buttons... Reserve Study Project strategies: Comprehensive Scope or Selective Scope.
Submitting the form... When using an email program installed on your computer, such as Outlook, upon completing the form you simply click the Submit Request button & it should open a new email-- automatically addressed to us with a copy of the RFP already attached! You can add remarks or attach other files (like PDF project site maps?) and then shoot it right off to us.
When using an online mail program like Gmail or Hotmail the ‘Submit’ button simply will not work the same way. You must save a copy of the RFP (perhaps in your client’s folder), then logon to your mail account and send an email (with file attached) to: Quotes@RDAmidwest.com
Reserve Study Updates Because all our data is stored electronically, and we already have the inventory details, updates to your RDA Report are relatively inexpensive. The typical cost for an update, at 2-3 year intervals, is roughly half the cost of the original Full Study, including an on-site visit to reexamine and assess the condition of the reserve components. Our update worksheet form simplifies getting us the information we need to complete the updated analysis & report. RDA Update Worksheets
Helping your clients get their first reserve study underway. If your board elects to proceed with an RDA reserve analysis, they'll probably count on you to get us what we need to get started. So we made a checklist for you. Just send along as much of the information as is available and applicable. For example, if the client has opted for a Selective Scope study, limited to their specific roster of reserve components, there is no need to send us copies of their governing documents... If you have any questions just give us a call. RDA Checklist Starting Reserve Balance Worksheet
