You can base the content of your proposal to include the RUP described in this article ("Scaling Levels to Support Enterprise Solutions" section near the bottom):

Basically, you don't want to be very detailed in your proposal. Unless the client asks for it, an overview/general design may be enough. You can reserve the detailed technical specification as part of your deliverables (analysis and design are usually billable in a project).

The important goal of the proposal is to present the project team, timeline and cost.

 - The team identifies the people involved and their roles in the project (contact persons, people to blame in case of..., etc.).

 - The timeline should show the project's start and end dates identifying milestones along the way.

 - The cost includes the cost of your service and the cost of additional investments such as hardware, software, peripherals, third-party services, etc. You can be very detailed in the cost breakdown or you can simply state it as a "package price".

Some people presents the proposal as the contract as well complete with statements on terms and methods of payment, disclaimers, waivers, etc.

Have fun...
