Proposal Preparation
& Submission

A proposal is more than a pitch document; it’s a work plan.

Proposals are complex documents with specific requirements for each section. Be sure that you understand each component and allocate adequate time to put together your budget and gather the necessary components for your proposal. Keep in mind that some components require additional review so that should also be accounted for in your preparation timeline.
