Proposal and RFPs
There are 2 parts to this assignment:
1. Identify a Request for Proposal on the internet in your chosen field. Create a checklist of items that are needed and the format required for anyone wanting to respond to the proposal. Indicate whether the response is in the format of a letter, memo, or completing a form, and any other unique details. Review two other RFPs and comment on how the three format requirements differ and how they are alike. This assignment will introduce you to RFPs and how they are written and responded to. There are Requests for Proposals which an organization sends out to get bids on a project.
Then we have Responses to Proposals which is what the organizations complete to respond to the Request for Proposal. Another item to think about is the Response for Quote or RFQ. This is when organizations send out a request for quotes only with regard to a potential project. So, for this assignment, we are only focusing on Requests for Proposals, which are a very nice way to see what kind of work is out there, particularly in your particular academic or professional field.
Avoid RFPs that are for research, but instead, go for those that are for particular services. Pay attention to how each of these requires a different format, and the deadlines are very precise.
Suggested format with headings:
Introduction: Who initiated the RFP? What is it for? How much lead time is there for companies to respond?
Format (describe the announcement)
Notable Contents (table of contents, other details)
(same as above)
(same as above)
