Dear Hisham,

The way I understood you question is that you need to write an RFQ (Request For Quote) to be presented to the contractors. This document is required for them to participate in your bid. This is not a deploy guidelines, this is rather a technical spec of the system that you are building. In your bid award process you may want to select an experience contractor who already knows how to deploy the system.
For the best sample of an RFQ, visit BICSI website at:

If you need help adapting the RFQ sample to your exact project, please drop me a message at
