The first thing in any form of proposal should be the company letter head. If you have not created a letter head yet, paste your logo on the top left corner of the paper and add your basic contact details after it. It should include the complete postal address, electronic mail address, and your contact number. Just after the letter head, write the name of the person to whom the bid is being submitted.
The document should be named as ‘Construction bid proposal’. After the title, add the name of the owner and the date of submission of the bid.
In the introductory paragraph explain the outline of the work briefly. Then explain the complete scope of work which your company plans of undertaking.
For example, if you own a wood panelling company, include the list of all objects needed for the job. This may include wooden panels, door knobs, and polishing material.
Inclusion of scope of project makes it easier for the owners to get the complete picture, and compare your proposal with the other bids. This also makes you look very organized and professional.
The price should be mentioned clearly. There should be no ambiguity in the pricing formula or the mode of payment. This will also explain the cost of different steps to the owner and makes their job of evaluating different proposals easy.
Mention whether tax is included in the price, and if not who will be responsible for paying that.
