A supplemental project proposal is created and sent when more resources are needed, to complete a project, than originally proposed. It’s basically a request for more funds, supplies, materials, or labor.
How to write a supplemental project proposal
These types of proposals can be difficult to get right. You’re asking for more money, so you need to justify the reasons why.
The project may have changed or grown exponentially, or you may have miscalculated the amount of resource needed to complete it.
Regardless of the reason, this type of proposal needs careful consideration.
Use the below process to make sure you clearly:
- Explain why you need additional resources
- Prove the value of the extra resource
- Update the client with a revised budget and timeline based on the new plan
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.
