A. Options: What options are available for each item in your budget proposal? You will want to have various options ready that will meet your needs because one option may not be approved by your supervisor or board, but another option may better fit their needs.
B. Financial Research: Describe the cost-benefit of each option based on relevant information and research. Information and research can include research on the items or vendors, organizational numbers, price quotes, and more. Be sure to provide relevant documentation in an appendix or reference slide (e.g., sources for the cost of the items in your proposal, company resources, and financial calculations) to show the depth of your research and the various options available.
C. Organizational Resources: Identify what resources would be needed to implement one of the options in your proposal (e.g., support from information technology, accounting, janitorial, volunteers).
D. Communication: What method of communication would be used to notify departments across the organization and what methods would be used throughout proposal implementation? Justify the appropriateness of your suggestions.
