Writing for Work Formats Proposals  Format and Organization

Format and Organization in the Business Proposal

The format and organization of a proposal depend on both the type of proposal and the intended audience or recipient.  

If you are unsure what format you should use, ask the intended recipient for a description or example of the type of document they expect.  

In many cases, whether your proposal is for a potential customer or for someone within your own company, the recipient will provide a document listing the requirements for your proposal.  These requirements may be contained in the original request for proposal (RFP)
