Outlines are important in individual proposal writing efforts and essential in team writing efforts. When you organize your proposal according to the customer’s request, you demonstrate your ability to follow their direction and lay the foundation that your proposal will also meet the customer’s needs.

This interactive eLearning course introduces participants to using the customer’s request for proposal or bid as the guide for creating a compliant outline to ensure your response meets the customer’s stated requirements.

This course includes a short quiz at the end. Students also have access to sections of the Shipley Proposal Guide to supplement and reinforce key best practices.

You will have access to the course for 1 year.
