The RFPs are the easier half to write. It's the proposals, which I have
to write once a year, that are difficult. When you write the RFP, you
know--at least in theory--what you want. As the proposal writer, I often
have to guess what you want because you haven't written a very good RFP.
By "good," I mean, you haven't clearly and thoroughly specified product
parameters and limitations.

On the other hand, I suspect that good proposal writers are far more
valuable than the average RFP writer.
