Project overview. 10 points
The project proposal begins with an overview, which is a summary of the project.
It does not include specific aspects or details of the proposal but should paint an overall picture of what is contained within the proposal.
The project overview is commonly written last, although it is included as the first section of the proposal. The project overview should tie the entire proposal together and often times writing it last works much better to accomplish this.
The overview is what creates an impression in the mind of the reader, so it is important that it is written strongly.
