In the business world many companies ask more than one supplier to submit a proposal showing what they might charge for a particular product or service. If you are new to the supply side of this situation you may need to refer to a sample proposal template to make sure that the bid you plan to submit is in the correct format. In many cases if a proposal is not formatted properly the company who has requested the bid will not even bother to look at it.
After the Cover Letter and Title Page, add topic pages to show that you understand the position and needs of your boss or prospective client. If your proposal is complex, you might need to begin this section with a brief summary_a page or two that states the most important points you will describe in detail in the following pages. This sort of summary is called an Executive Summary for corporate clients or a Client Summary in a less formal proposal. Your goal in this section is to describe the needs, goals, and desires of your client (i.e., the person who will make the decision about whether or not to accept your proposal). This is not yet the place to talk about what you want to offer. In this section, you must demonstrate that you understand the other party's position and requirements.
