Write a technical proposal for the organization identified in the scenario. The proposal should only
discuss the technical aspects of the project. Do not focus on the managerial aspects such as cost,
human and technical resources, etc.
• You must ensure that the technical proposal is relevant to the scenario given.
• Your technical proposal should ideally answer the following questions (but not limited to):
- What would be the hardware requirements?
- What would be the software requirements?
- What would the communication and network for the scenario look like?
- What would be the data needs and the data storage needs?
- What would be the structure of the data layout plan?
- How would the technical proposal being put forth be beneficial for the management
and other stakeholders?
- How would the proposed solution improve operations?
- What would the limitations of the proposed solution be?
- Other questions
When writing your technical proposal, make sure that you write in a systematic way (the questions
above are not given in a systematic manner). Make use of the internet to find out the
structure/format of a technical proposal. When writing the technical proposal, assume that this
would be submitted to your potential customer (as identified in the scenario given to you).
Guidelines for Writing the Technical Proposal:
Your facilitator would have guided you on how to structure the technical proposal in the Collaborate
Learning Activity in Module 2.1.
