From my experience, I would say that Salim has it right. EFP packages are put together by companies such as Bexel, Plus 8, Wexler, etc. They could be as simple as a one-camera package that goes out with one operator. Or, they can be more complicated, with multiple cameras run through a portable switcher (or not) with stand alone tape decks and other nicities.

If you want a full blown semi tractor trailer with eight to twelve (or more) cameras and a big-time digital switcher and dedicated audio control room, and room for annoying network busy bodies, you can look in the yellow pages under "Remote Production Facilities."

Of course things can get confusing: is a camera operator shooting for "Entertainment Tonight" doing ENG, or EFP? Or, maybe it's an EPK, which is "Electronic Press Kit."

In the end, it all comes down to three questions:
Where's the coffee?
What's for lunch?
When do we wrap?
Oops. Sorry, those are the studio questions.

I have always understood it to be, EFP=electronic film production.

The philosophy is the deference. But I suppose electronic field production would would be a better term for industrials, commercials and such.
