I'm not aware of an easy way to append a PDF to the end of a Word doc, but my suggestion is to submit your proposal as an all-PDF doc. When you're done with the Word doc, make it a PDF (that's very easy, such as Save As to PDF or print to a PDF print driver). Then combine the two PDFs, also very easy, depending on the tools you have, such as IrfanView (with the PDF plugin). Regards, Joe

I was thinking I had done this before. You can actually insert the pdf as part of the document in Word 2010.
If you go to menu tab Insert / Object, you can select from the dialog - "Create New" or "Create from File"

According to the help message on "Create from File", it "Inserts the contents of the file into your document so that you can edit it later using the application which created the source file."

I tried it with a test document - type some text, then insert/object/create new/adobe acrobat document.
Your file shows up as a placeholder graphic in the document.

What I did notice in my test was that of my 6 page pdf, only the first page shows up in the insertion. However, if you double-click on the image, it will open the entire pdf in Reader.
So you would probably need to put some text to your client to "Double-Click to see ALL pages of this Product Overview in Adobe Reader"

Hope this is helpful.
