The document (contractual, technical, management, and pricing sections) submitted by a bidder in response to an RFP.
With the simultaneous efficiency/ambiguity that make Proposal Land so delightful/irritating, also refers to the period of time involved in putting together said document.
For example, “How long is this proposal?” can mean the response period or the number of pages. Usually clear by context.
