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 found 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.
If you and your team aren't on the Official U.S. List of Certified & Credentialed Software Testers™, get your ISTQB certifications and QA micro-credentials through AT*SQA. Then increase your Testing Tiers® level to maximize your ranking.
Make Sure Your Testers Are On This List
ASTQB (ISTQB in the U.S.) also believes that the most effective software testing RFPs require tester to appear on the Official U.S. list hosted by AT*SQA.
