What is Proposal?

A proposal is a document that aims to persuade the reader to approve a proposed project or implement a proposed plan. It may contain recommendations, results of surveys, technical background, information about feasibility, and so on.

Types of proposals:

  • Internal and external. Internal proposals are created for someone within your organization. An external proposal is usually written for people that are not members of a company.
  • Solicited and unsolicited. A solicited proposal is a document that a recipient has requested. Usually, a company sends out requests for proposal (RFP) via email, for example. Unsolicited proposals are those in which the recipient has not requested proposals.
