Job Description for Proposal Writer

Proposal writers are responsible for creating and delivering business proposals. They analyze proposal documents such as requests for proposals (RFPs), requests for information (RFIs), and requests for quotations (RFQs). After thoroughly researching requests to determine potential costs and benefits, proposal writers prepare an appropriate response. This process involves coordinating information and tasks with many departments in the organization; proposal writers must gather information from the sales team, developers or engineers, vendors, and other partners to accurately determine projected costs and benefits. Then, they prepare a written proposal to communicate their company’s ability to effectively meet the contract’s needs at a reasonable price.
