Working with Proposal Writing Businesses
When working with any consultant, it is best to have the details available or at least easily accessible. These are stated in the RFP or grant.The consultant may not have all the numbers initially to write the proposal so be prepared for feedback. Getting the details as soon as possible can help convey the clearest vision of your proposed project.
This anticipation is easier said than performed. Having someone who is available to provide these facts will help the proposal development process go more smoothly. If your company has a statement of work perfomed that is qualified by the metrics of the RFP or grant, it is good to have the description of the project and the customer’s satisfaction/evaluation of the project before the proposal is even written. In the proposal, focus on fulfilling the customer’s needs and measuring the performance of your work. Make sure to schedule time to review the proposal with the writer before submission. Most of the details for the grant or RFP should be gathered pre-RFP.
