RFIs, i.e. requests for information, are used in construction to clarify any uncertainties or fill in any gaps in information found on any specifications, plans, contracts, or other documents.
When there is a question about a document, a general contractor or subcontractor submits an RFI to the person who initially provided the document (client, designer, etc.). The party receiving the RFI submits a response to the contractor with an answer to their question.
RFIs are an integral part of the construction communication process. No communication, whether it is written or verbal, is flawless in its design and interpretation. In almost any case, questions will arise, information will be left out, and the need for clarification will result.
With the construction industry having so many moving parts, it can be challenging to track all critical information attracted to a project. Today, most construction companies utilize construction software to help them complete projects efficiently, with quality, and successfully. Part of having construction software includes having RFI management software. This is key to managing the flow of requests for information on any of your projects.
