The total project budget is $10,000 and the submission deadline is 3:00 pm, Thursday, November 15, 2012.

All finalists will present their final proposals to the committee in person. Please do not submit detailed models, drawings, samples, or final proposals for the first round of the selection process.

What a great way to request for a proposal. I have been looking for ways to get businesses to send in proposals for my business. Thanks so much for showing us how you look for help. I hope you find someone you are looking for.
