    Great question Hannah ~ and from my experiences, RFI can come from a variety of angles; i.e. consultants, prospective clients or user groups, bidders, contractors or builders.  Hence, it would be my guess that there is not enough information in the question for you to assume that this would a request for information from a contractor of whom has already won the bid, and has already commenced the project, so there would be no way to define which project to which direct labor costs could be assigned.  I sure hope others can help us both understand this context more clearly soon, thx for the post.

    The sample question actually mentions RFP, (Request For Proposal) not an RFI.
    RFP is a pre-contract task whereas an RFI is typically a Construction Administration task. Paul, can you clarify a bit more on how an RFI may not be billable or direct labor? I always assumed RFI’s are billable because as far as I understand an RFI is in fact a contractual task assuming one was written for such tasks.
