| Proposal Writing: Concept and style go hand in hand |
When writing your proposal make sure the style and the words you use make your concept easy to follow. Include a blend of keywords, buzz-words and EU English.
The idea is key to the proposal but leave some time to edit and proofread everything so that your thoughts are concise and easy to follow.

| Finance: Are seconded employees and subcontractors charged in the same way? |
No, they aren't. Seconded employees are charged at a cost level, so one must prove that the secondment cost is a cost that is transferred from the organisation that employs that colleague and seconds it to you. In contrast, subcontractors are general, market-based contracts, where the agreed price would generally include the profit of the subcontractor. The latter is charged as subcontracting costs, and no overheads will be added to that.
