6.  Question:  May we have a WORD.doc version of the Internet RFP and the SIP/PRI RFP? 

 Answer:  Unfortunately, we do not send out WORD.doc versions of these documents.  This ensures that none of the language in the RFPs we have posted is altered from the original posting.  Unfortunately, since none of the items within the posting are excel spreadsheets there is no way for us to send those pages with a password protection for the areas we do not wish altered.
