Part 1 (15%) – Prepare a Proposal

As a consultant, you are submitting a tender/proposal to a government of a country to
help them prepare a country-level profile (in the form of a final report). You believe that
you have the necessary data management and analysis skills to carry out this task.
Country level profiles are used to assist policy makers in preparing strategic plans for the
country.

In the first stage of this project, you will prepare a tender/proposal which will explicitly
outline the information that you will include in the final report (part 2 of the project).

Your proposal will consider the following aspects of the country:

1. Population
2. Macroeconomic indicators (Interest rates, inflation rate etc.)
3. Environmental indicators (CO2 emissions, air quality etc.)
4. COVID-19 impact

In addition to the above, you are required to choose another aspect of your choice which
you think is unique to your country and will help in its development. Examples of this
include main industries, technological capability, human rights information etc.

All the aspects listed above are quite broad. It is up to you to select what you think it
appropriate for the policy makers. For example, when presenting the country’s
population information, we could choose to focus on population growth, age group
distribution or gender distribution. Additionally, with most of the data being time series,
you will also need to decide what time horizon you want to focus on. For example, in the
population case, do you want to consider all the data available (all years) or only the
recent years. Please provide very brief reasons for your choices.

The proposal will consist of the following sections:

1. Title page
2. Cover letter – A very brief letter outlining your case of assisting in the preparation

of the country level profile.
3. Table of contents
4. Proposal – What will be included in the final report? Briefly, describe why this

work is important.
5. Methodology – Specific details on how the information will be presented (related

to materials in modules 2 and 3). Also included here will be the details on data
sources and definitions (module 1). You may also include any limitations on data
availability (if applicable).

6. References – A list of resources (includes data sources) used or referenced in the
proposal. Please use the Chicago referencing style (see unit outline for further
details).

7. Project timeline – List of activities/tasks that will be completed and the expected
time each of these will take.

Country allocation
Please refer to the file titled – “Country_Allocation_S2_2021.pdf” to find out which
country you will be working for. You will need to know your student number. If you are
unable to find your allocated country, please email ecom1000@curtin.edu.au as soon as
possible.

Data sources
Listed below are a sample of websites that contain country level information/data. Please
feel free to explore more resources:
https://data.worldbank.org/
https://data.un.org/default.aspx
https://ourworldindata.org/countries

Word limit
Please note that there is a maximum word limit of 700 words for the proposal. This
excludes the cover letter, references and the project timeline.

Additional information
Please watch the accompanying assessment video which explains the
requirements in greater detail. Please consult with your tutor as well as use
consultation times to discuss or seek feedback for the proposal before the due date.

Submission details
Please submit your final proposal via Turnitin on the 20th of August 2021 by 12 noon
Australian Western Standard Time (AWST). Standard penalties (see unit outline) will
apply to late submissions which have no approval. Please also be mindful of the academic
integrity requirements for this unit. Please refer to the unit outline for further details on
this.

The marking rubric on the next page will be used to mark the submitted proposals.

Please note this is a proposal only. As such, it should NOT contain any results (tables,
plots) or discussion (commentary on results). However, whilst writing the proposal you
should ensure that whatever you are proposing is possible. Investing time into this
proposal is going to be worthwhile, since many of the components in the proposal will be
used again in part 2 of the project (worth 35%). In fact, the proposal (marked version)
will need to be submitted again in part 2 of the project.
