You definitely want to reference TIA/EIA-568-B and TIA/EIA-569-B standards. Also, BISCI used to provide a template for a structured cabling RFQ (request for quote) but they since moved this document to a member-only area.
One solution I can think of: why don't you let your potential cabling installer to create such document for you? Installers are usually familiar with applicable standards and may even have a copy of the above mentioned RFQ template. I you be nice and actually pay for their work of creating the document, I'm sure they won't object to you using this RFQ later to let other people bid on the scope of work.
