The company you work for has decided to make a major purchase. This purchase can be software, technology, equipment, training, or anything else needed for the company’s day-to-day operations.
Your supervisor has assigned you the task of creating a research proposal for the company to help guide them in this purchase.
Before you begin writing the proposal, do your research, gathering information from at least four different sources. Two of these sources should be located in the CSU Online Library. The remaining two sources can come from the CSU Online Library, or they can be websites, such as the website for the company that sells what you are purchasing.
In this unit, your goal is to begin the proposal. In the next unit, you will complete the proposal.
For this assignment, submit the first two pages of the proposal, which include the heading information and sections for the purpose and summary. These sections are covered in Chapter 11 of your textbook. You can use the example proposal on page 309 of your textbook to help you with the formatting of this assignment.
This assignment should be at least two pages in length plus a reference page. Be sure to follow all APA guidelines for citing outside sources.
