Definition of Proposal:

  1. A plan or suggestion, especially a formal or written one, put forward for consideration or discussion by others.

  2. Solicited or unsolicited submission by one party to supply (or buy) certain goods or services to (or from) another. Unlike an offer, a proposal is not a promise or commitment but, if accepted by the other party, its proposer is expected to follow through and negotiate for the creation of a binding contract. If submitted in response to a request for proposals (RFP), it normally constitutes a bid.

  3. An offer of marriage.
