What is a Request for Information (RFI) ?

Definition: What Does the Term RFI Mean?
Request for Information (RFI) is a commonly used phrase that identifies the method of asking a question on a construction project. There are many different formats for an RFI, however, the intent is the same. If there is a question on the documents, specifications or other elements of a construction project, an RFI is issued that is used to track the question as well as the answer.
