Friday's Ask the Experts: Proposal creation

March 16, 2012

Friday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: I would really appreciate it if you can help me with a template to use to make my to make my proposal. My store Manager offered me the daily contract cleaning for the supermarket, rest room cleaning, and doing the floor with the scrub machine, as well as refinishing. I know how much it’s going to be; I just need help to create my proposal.

The answer:

Don’t make this more complicated than it need be. You don’t need a fancy template or setup to give a basic proposal.

Set up your pricing in a list.

Daily maintenance - $xxxx.xx per month.
Restroom service -- $xxx.xx per month
Floor scrubbing - $xxxx.xx per month
Finishing - $xxx.xx per coat

The manager can do the totals for what he sees as needed ... — Lynn E. Krafft, ICAN/ATEX editor
