I think direct quotes apply only to someone's spoken words, as the actress said to the bishop on the courthouse steps. You are perfectly justified in correcting the text errors from the RFP.

Hey, gotta question concerning direct quotes. I am currently working on a
proposal where I am quoting specific questions outlined in the RFP. These
questions often (and I am being nice) contain grammatical mistakes. Do I
correct these mistakes in my quotations or leave them as is? Initially, my
knee-jerk grammar fingers fixed the problems, but then I thought, that's
really not a quote then is it? Perhaps I am making much ado about nothing.
