NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE WILLIAM. Can i suggest we add a section for mission, values and goals alignment? Also maybe something about success metrics/KPIs so proposal can be held accountable to their outcomes?

An optional, accompanying [Theme Song] should be added to the template. Would be cool to get the vibe of a proposal in ways that cannot be communicated through text. But that might be just me being silly.

I second the key results/KPI/DoD requirement. Every proposal is an experiment in a sense and it needs to be clear how we validate the outcome (not to punish people, to iterate over the results). I know this is probably same as scope of work, but I think it should be mandatory and clearly defined.
