All of that for only 125 points!  Sheesh man.  Since no one has responded yet, and stuff, I'll respond sharing with you my experience with writing up proposals and bidding on projects, and my analysis of these requirements.  But I won't write examples or a novel for you (Note, #1 alone says Maximum of 5 pages, which basically means minimum of 3 pages).  Sorry  =)

Those 6 aspects are basically things they are looking for in your proposal.  If you can't provide them then your proposal will pretty much be ignored.  I will summarize what they want in your paper for each number below...

#1: They are looking for you to use and know the technical terms and functionality of the project.  They want to be able to read your paper and feel you know every aspect of this project, and anything that could go wrong.

#2: They are looking for basically what it says, what the heck you are going to do.  They want to see your experience at doing this type of project really stand out, and for you to take charge and know what should be done in what order, and how you will accomplish this, and who you will have accomplish this.  It seems they also want you to describe scenarios and possible difficulties.  To do that basically write some different things that can happen along the development path, and their different possible outcomes, and what you plan to do with each of those outcomes.

#3, 4, 5, 6: They want to see your experience like crazy.  These four will prolly take you 5-6 pages to show and prove to them that you (or your company) can do this job by shoving experience in their face like crazy.  They want to know what languages you have programmed in, maybe some example programs you have written or projects that you programmed for (#5), they want to see your experience in debugging applications and systems which is a rather hard thing to explain but if you gave a lot of examples of running into problems and then describing your approach and how you fixed the problem then it will give them a good concept of this (#6).  To achieve (#3) you will need to document a lot of projects, programs, etc that you have taken an active part of, and how you "analysed, assesed, and developed/enhanced" them.  And lastly, to get (#4), you'll need to basically show that you have done this before by siting examples, wether they are URL's, or even attaching a CD with this proposal containing pictures and possibly sample code of other projects that you have done that are exactly like this.

Hope that helps... and hope some other experts want to write some examples for you...  =)  If you want to look at templates online it wouldn't be a bad idea.  Search on google for proposal template, or something and you'll find some examples.  =)

Yeesh... quite harsh.

Anyway, hope it helps you in future endeavors.
