A solicited project proposal is a written document that establishes the concept of a project and what it will accomplish.
It outlines the project objectives and describes how they will be achieved.
It either offers a solution to a problem or a course of action in response to a need.
The primary purpose of a solicited project proposal is to sell yourself and the project you are proposing to the proposal reviewer. The goal is to persuade them to take the course of action you propose.
Use this checklist alongside the proposal document that you plan to send to the reviewer to make sure you set the project vision, define the project requirements, describe the deliverables, and specify the deadlines. Use it to make sure that all elements have been considered, that the proposal contains everything it needs to and that it meets all set requirements.
Writing a successful proposal is competitive, tough and a long process that can seem overwhelming at first. You need strong processes in place to make sure you have gathered all the required information, adhered to all set guidelines, and are writing clear, concise, and persuasive proposals.
Create a checklist template and run individual checklists for each member of your team. You can check tasks off as you work through them, set deadlines, add approvals, assign tasks, and track each team member’s progress.
