RFPs that discourage response

Integrated Computer File Integrity Monitoring Infrastructure via http://www.transitchicago.com/

Wow! It is not until page 48 that you finally get some detail on what this RFP is asking for. And, of the 61 pages only 2 are about the work. I thought (mostly in passing) I might submit a proposal regards this request but the effort to complete the submission is by far more time consuming than the completion of the work itself. No wonder government costs are so high and RFPs are submitted by companies filled by mid-level employees.
