Architecture/Engineering (A/E) consultant Tom Sargent, P.E., DEE, outlines how a management proposal addresses several typical client concerns:

  • Transparency of the team. How will you manage subs, vendors, and consultants so the client perceives you as one team?

  • Program status. How will you keep the client informed?

  • “Plan the work and work the plan.” Will you follow the plan the client has agreed to?

  • Infrastructure compatibility. How will you avoid systems hitches among all the parties involved, (e.g., buying compatible software for subcontractors if you have to)?

  •  Your ownership of the team. Show that you are committed to, and capable of, keeping all members working together.

  •  Corporate commitment. How important is this project to your firm?
