A proposal is important to every organization that wants to get jobs to sustain its existence. It is an important write up for winning the confidence of another company that is sourcing for professional assistance in some task or project.
A proposal must be well prepared in its format and content as well as presentation for submission with the intention to win the job. It is a statement declaring the organization’s skills, expertise, experience, resources and professionalism to handle the proposed project or task.
A proposal must be accurate, informative and convincing from start to end. It is usually 4-5 pages long containing the company background, company practices, project description, objectives, integration, project planning and management; it has to state the deliverables, milestones, tasks, resources and finances.
The proposal may also list the industrial partners and available funding which are related to the project. It should describe the impact on the objectives if it were undertaken by the company.
A proposal template should encompass:
* Company’s Name & Logo
* Client’s name and address
* Proposal title
* Project title
* Date of proposal
* Background of proposing company
* Project description
* Aims & Objectives
* Industrial partner and its role
