|Write an effective proposal--|
Identify the resources that you will need to provide the technical descriptions and compliance matrices. Set deadlines for each section so that when the proposal deadline approaches you will have the proposal on time. You must have a clear understanding of your objectives when preparing the proposal. A proposal for building a factory is used when you are being considered along with other potential contractors. When you write your proposal carefully plan and prepare an outline. Address every term and requirement in the RFP when writing the outline. The proposal should address the RFP line for line.
Things You’ll Need
Charts and graphs
Write section one. Start with the description in which you will provide the reader with a snapshot of what you plan to build. Address in this section how people will benefit from the factory and where it will be located. Write your mission statement. Tell them in your mission statement that you are committed and what you plan for the community. For example, give a description of a similar factory that you have built.
Write section two. In section two stress the benefits of building the factory. What is the direct benefit to the city? Inform the reader of how many jobs the factory might bring to the city. Inform the reader of the sales tax benefits. Give an explanation of the benefits of hiring your company for example, the experience and capabilities that your company has in similar projects.
Write the development section in section three of the proposal. State what the building’s features will be by giving the square footage and the maximum height of the building. Write about the features of the office space, restrooms, and the restaurant giving a detailed description of each item.
Write the fourth section. Write the time of completion. Set deadline dates and include dates by which you proposed to complete the job. Write the cost information section and provide the proposed price.
Write the fifth section. Provide a list of qualifications, a list of resumes and the responsibilities of the key personal named in the proposal. Include information on engineers, architects and your project team and provide references. What experience do the founders of the company have? List the company goals and objectives.
Writing without an outline leads to confusion and you might end up with a proposal that does not meet the RFP standards.
