Alternate Titles: Proposal Writer
Proposal Specialists are responsible for researching, identifying, and crafting a Request for Proposal. Proposal Specialists track RFP cycles, keeping well informed of deadlines and requirements. They need to be able to understand the language of the proposal, and disseminate this information as needed to colleagues and department heads. Proposal Specialists act as the company liaison and must make sure all aspects of the RFP are correct, as well as negotiate agreements, and track funds and update databases. They also ensure that the physical production of the RFP is complete, and that hard and soft copies are kept on file.
