Unit VIII Formal Proposal
Students are required to submit for grading a Formal Proposal in Unit VIII. Using the guidelines in your textbook, write a Formal Proposal (minimum of seven pages, including the cover page). The proposal should include:
- Cover/Title Page
- Letter/Memo of Transmittal
- Table of Contents
- Executive Summary
- Discussion Sections
- Appendices (include an SPA style Reference Page)
If necessary, include a List of Illustrations. Be sure to include that material in your Table of Contents.
For this proposal, imagine that you own a company that has been asked to provide a proposal to solve a problem in your local community. Research possible topics in local newspapers, and be sure to provide references for any outside sources you use in your proposal. Below is a list of sample topics:
- Planned construction (roads, shopping centers, etc.)
- Pensions for public employees
- Improvements in public education
- Advertising local businesses
Refer to the sample proposal on pages 174-182 of your textbook for an example of the proper form.
By uploading your assignment through Blackboard, your university record will automatically be updated to indicate you have submitted your paper and it will be provided to your professor for grading.
