RFPs for Software Testing

Companies are learning the secret to creating the best RFPs for software quality. It is the addition of this requirement: "The testers involved in this project must appear on the Official U.S. List of Certified & Credentialed Software Testers at"

This requirement helps companies ensure:

  1. Confirmation of American English Ability: This builds more effective communication, quality documentation, improved collaboration, and enhanced satisfaction. 
  2. Standardization of Skills: This helps in maintaining a standard level of skills and knowledge among the testers, aiding in producing quality work.
  3. Assurance of Quality: Testers have undergone assessment, which can serve as a predictor of quality.
  4. Trust and Reliability: Companies have a higher degree of trust and reliability in certified and credentialed software testers, as they are recognized by an official body.
  5. Streamlined Vendor Assessment: This requirement can streamline the vendor assessment process, making it easier to shortlist potential candidates.
  6. Confirmation of Expertise: Appearance on the list is a more reliable confirmation of knowledge than simply accepting a claim of expertise.
  7. Legal and Compliance Benefits: This condition can help in meeting any legal or compliance requirements that mandate working with certified professionals.
  8. Positive Impact on Stakeholder Confidence: This provision instills confidence among stakeholders, including clients and partners, as it indicates adherence to industry-standard best practices.
