\subsection{Outline of a Project Proposal}
\begin{itemize}
\item  Project title
\item  Brief introduction or description of the project - no more than paragraph to help someone picking up the document.
\item  Objectives of the project - what do you think are the important objectives for the client. Prioritize them.
\item  Description of project - detailed description of the project. This can take the form of a description of the completed work or a discussion of process (or Methodology.) It should help both sides understand what you will and won't do. It shows that you have understood their needs.
\item  Methodology - where appropriate you can describe what methodology you will use in completing the project.
\item  Outcomes - a list of the key outcomes for the client. You can also be specific about what will not be done or what will be left for a next phase of the project.
\item  Timeline - when will the project stop and an estimate as to when it will end.
\item  Resources needed - what resources might be needed other than the cost. What do you need from the client. This overlaps with the Expectations of the client.
\item  Expectations of the client - what you need the client to do for this to be competed in a timely fashion.
\item  Communications - how you will communicate with the client.
\item  Risks - what the risks are and what possible solutions.
\item  Questions - questions raised by the project or questions that can only be answered during the project.
\item  Cost estimate - the estimated cost of the project with discussion that breaks down the costs so as to explain them.

\subsection{Checklist for Project Proposal}

Check that you have the following in your proposal:
\begin{itemize}
\item  Client information - who is the client and contact information. Identify who you think the client is and the primary contact.
\item  Your information - who are you and your contact information. Make it easy for them to contact you.
\item  Page numbers - I'm not sure why, but everyone forgets page numbers when preparing things at the last moment.
\item  Date of the proposal - when was it written and submitted.
\end{itemize}
