Researched Proposal Topic Ideas
Introduction
Students – the following blurbs were taken from researched proposals written by previous students in
this course. All the ideas are good ones and lent themselves well to the assignment. Please use these as
ideas/jumping off spots for your own researched proposal assignment. Consider the sorts of problems
being addressed and think about how you could arrive at your own researched proposal topic idea.
These are only suggestions – you are not required to choose from this list. However, should you find a
topic on this list that appeals to you, feel free to use it.
Recycling Oyster Shells
I currently work at a seafood restaurant that specializes in serving raw oysters. I would estimate that in
an average week, the restaurant accumulates about 50 pounds of oyster shells. Currently, these oyster
shells go to the trash. My proposal, which I would present to the restaurant owner, develops a strategy
for making better use of the old oyster shells. At the moment, I think it would be plausible to find an
organization that replants oyster shells into the Chesapeake Bay. This is a small change that can be made
to benefit the local environment and reflect positively on the restaurant.
Expansion of New Bus Routes
Recently our Institute moved from 2416 21st Ave South to 1500 Briley Parkway. This move allowed our
school to provide a higher quality of education to our students. We are able to provide a bigger facility
and state of art classrooms for our students. There were drawbacks to this move however, and one of
the biggest was the lack of public transportation available at our new location. During the 5 years we
were at our previous location, the growth of our student population had a direct correlation to public
transportation. I propose expansion of a new route for Metro Transit Authority (MTA) to include the
local community and our school around Briley Parkway. The closest bus route to our school is currently
over 2 miles away. This not only affects the school, but the businesses and homes around it.
Promoting Accountability with a New Policy Contract
At Mac’s incorporated there needs to be a well-developed policy contract that is signed to stress the
importance of the policy manual. I have researched the importance of a policy contract when there is a
well-established policy manual already in place like we have in our company. Our policy manual does an
excellent job anticipating problems that may arise in our business and being proactive in determining
how to handle them. Though this manual is given to all new employees there is no contract to be signed
to have the employees acknowledge that they have read and understood the manual.
I propose that we create a policy contract to be signed on the date of hire that forms a commitment of
the employee to follow the guidelines set forth in the policy manual. The policy contract will also be
given to all current employees to sign. I also propose that any changes made and the manual itself will
also be placed on the company’s training website for easier accessibility when the employees have a
question regarding the policy. Employees will need to comply monthly and sign in to the training
website to update themselves on changes and training. The employee’s activity on the website will be
tracked by our HR department. This compliance will be mandatory and will ensure that everyone is
reading and understanding the policy manual and changes that are made to that manual.

Researched Proposal Topic Ideas
Going Green
As an organization that prides itself on meeting the community’s needs, this association must respond
to the growing concerns about pollution, its effect on health and lifestyle, and the pressures on local
business to sustain the environment for future generations. The YMCA of Central Ohio can achieve this
by modifying computer and paper usages, office supply policies, methods of transportation, and building
modifications. If we fall short in responding to environmental concerns within our community we will
not fulfill our mission to keep families healthy and strong.
Should Wappo Services Bring Marketing In-House?
I propose that we bring the marketing in-house. Currently we are using an outside source to do the
marketing for the company. Although this may have been a good idea in the beginning, it has turned out
to be not so good for the company. Research indicates in-house marketing provides greater flexibility
and control. The main question is, should we keep our marketing outsourced, or should we bring the
marketing in-house? This proposal will address this question.
Training Support Staff Personnel
Our mission at MidAtlantic Farm Credit is to be customer-owned and customer-focused. In order to
ensure that we are meeting that mission we need to make sure that our support staff has the skills
necessary to remain customer-focused. The benefit of this research is that MidAtlantic will have the
information needed to design an official program to meet the training needs of our support staff. This
will result in reduced costs and increased profit to the association.
State Farm Recycling Program Proposal
State Farm prides itself on its “Good Neighbor” service and image. Since 1922 our focus has been on
customer needs and company integrity, and we wish to continue in this direction. As stated in our
website, “Our vision for the future is to be the customer’s first and best choice in the products and
services we provide.” We will continue to be the leader in the insurance industry and we will become a
leader in the financial services arena. While State Farm has not been as affected by the recession as
some other insurance names such as AIG, it is still essential to ensure our financial security. Our earnings
are at a standstill; our website describes our $10.4 billion decrease in net worth last year. If we cannot
maintain financial stability, we cannot offer the low prices we must in order to stay ahead in the trade.
In short, we must explore any options which will lead to more efficient business practices or increased
sales. One way of addressing this issue is through the implementation of a nationwide recycling
program. Research shows that recycling can help a business save money by eliminating waste disposal
fees, and earn income due to a more satisfied customer base. This proposal includes your domain only,
Shoreline Branch of the AFO on the Eastern Shore, but our success would surely inspire other AFO’s to
follow in our footsteps.
Specifically, this proposal aims to build on our Good Neighbor image while increasing revenue and
establishing responsible, effective business practices. The foundation for this proposal revolves around
substantial research and meetings with specialists in the field.

Researched Proposal Topic Ideas
High Point Townhouses Crime Reduction Proposal
This proposal outlines potential solutions to address the increasing crime in our neighborhood. It has
been brought to the attention of residents in the High Point Townhouses community that there has
been an influx of crime in our neighborhood. The crimes consist of burglary, assaults, thefts, loitering,
littering, etc. Many people hanging around the neighborhood are not residents of High Point
Townhouses Community. The loitering and littering alone is bringing the property value down in our
neighborhood. Senior citizens in our community are afraid to walk within their neighborhood because of
the teenagers and young adults that are loitering in the neighborhood. The common area near the
playground on the far end of the fourth court is inviting the wrong crowd of people. Parents are afraid
to send their children to the playground near the fourth court because there are teenagers and young
adults sitting around drinking, playing loud music, and using foul language. Neighbors will come home
and are forced to park in the visitors’ parking area because visitors are ignoring the assigned parking
spaces for the residents. This proposal outlines strategies for addressing these issues.
Study of the Benefits and Drawbacks to Building a Permanent Stage for Community Theatre
The purpose of this study is to determine the benefits and drawbacks of the Avon Grove Community
Theatre (ACT) building its own stage. ACT’s needs in a stage will be outlined in the course of the study.
The proposed location of the building will be examined for proximity of means of support and potential
competition. The information gathered will be weighed to make a final recommendation to the Board of
ACT.
The Buddy Attick Lake Restoration Project
The Buddy Attick Park Lake in the Greenbelt Historic District has not been properly maintained and due
to this it no longer serves its intended functions in the community, primarily for community gatherings
and water sports. Restoration of the lake will provide a place for fishing, water sports, and other
community-oriented activities. An improved lake will promote community interaction, improve the local
economy, and attract interest to the Greenbelt Recreational programs.
Rectifying the Employee and Client Parking Issue
This proposal will bring to light the severity of the parking issue for our law firm, and provide a solution
to remedy the problem. The continual postponement of this issue has cost the firm $34,500 over the
last year. This figure was calculated after the accounting department combined all the elements in
relative to the parking issue. There is a domino effect that has been set in motion because of this issue.
The domino effect combines the cost of several variables affected by this problem. The end result, as
provided above, is an expense that spans far beyond the actual parking factor.
Streamlining Magazine Design Proposal
The Marine Corps News office has struggled to meet its mission and put out any product on a consistent
basis for several years. It even reached an all-time low in 2007 with only two issues making it to the
printer during the calendar year. While we could blame this trend on the previous staff setting us up for
failure, our personnel shortage, or all of the side projects thrown at this section each month that still
does not excuse us for following in the footsteps of our predecessors and constantly pushing back our
deadlines. We have all worked very hard to make it to this point and are almost back to producing an
4
Researched Proposal Topic Ideas
issue each quarter with one additional theme-driven magazine every four months. However, if we follow
the same outdated standard operating procedures, it is very likely that we will fall behind schedule once
again. Therefore, for the past month, I have been working with Bates Creative Group, the Government
Printing Office, and Universal Printing to develop a streamlined magazine production system that will
bring our print and online publication into the 21st Century.
Parking Solution Proposal
Lures Bar and Grille has been suffering a loss in profits and a decline in customer satisfaction due to a
lack of parking during our peak hours. We added a second lot to help with this issue, but we have yet to
file the proper paperwork with the Anne Arundel County Department of Inspections and Permits. This
minor detail has cost us money in fines and time lost. I have researched specific solutions to our parking
concerns, as well as received the proper paperwork to ensure we are within county ordinance
regulations. Our options are limited to the utilization of neighboring parking lots, valet services, and
modified carpooling for Lures employees. An immediate, cost effective, and easy to implement solution
is necessary for us to consider any suggestion viable. The conclusion that would best be suited for Lures
is to employ a modified carpooling system for staff members which would make use of the parking lot at
St. Paul’s Anglican Church.
Implementing an Electronic Billing System
This report evaluates United Health Group’s current billing and invoicing process and recommends a
more time and cost efficient solution. United Health Group is dedicated to offering and providing the
best healthcare packages to each of their clients. This company wants to provide the best packages and
services but is currently using a manual invoice process that is inefficient to the client as well as the
company.
The current invoice/billing process consists of several employees printing out over 2,900 invoices. After
the printing is completed each employee physically places them in envelopes to be sent down to the
mailroom. This is usually a two day process that occupies time that could be focused towards more
important projects. The printing of each invoice is completed on one centralized printer that is used by
several different departments. This forces other departments to delay their duties until all billing is
completed. United Health Group is now aware of how beneficial a new efficient billing process would be
for the company. Due to the declining economy it is more important than ever to cut cost as well as
retain and gain new business. A more efficient billing process will cut the costs associated with manual
billing and provide a better service to the client.
Emergency Readiness
I am planning to do my topic on emergency preparedness within the base housing community. Since I
live on Guam, the recent typhoon in the Philippines got me worried by the thought of that happening
here. Apart from this I do not feel we are well prepared with information and lines of communication in
base housing. To support the miscommunications and unpreparedness here, there was a recent incident
where there was some road working being done in the area and we received e-mailed information
about evacuation for the entire weekend because we were in a danger zone. In the area, there was an
undisturbed WWII war head detected. In this event we evacuated (got hotel rooms and spent
5
Researched Proposal Topic Ideas
unnecessary money) for the entire weekend only to find the construction was canceled. Therefore, it
was not necessary to leave our homes or spend money and we though I did not expect it were not
reimbursed for the charges.
Improving Potomac Valley Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation’s Medical Terminology
System
There has been a need to improve the medical and exercise lingo used within the Columbia clinic for
quite some time. We want to provide our patients with the safest and most effective care for their
injuries or disabilities while also increasing the ability of the staff to communicate more proficiently with
one another. We want to provide all doctors and surgeons with correct documentation regarding the
treatment received by the patients while they are in our clinic. In updating the medical terminology used
within Potomac Valley Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Columbia, we will be improving the patients’
overall experience while they are in our care and we will be bringing our staff and our clinic up-to-date
regarding the terminology which is being taught to physical therapy students today and is being used in
the newest, most state-of-the art physical therapy practices in the country.
Team Building Activities for Kaiser Permanente Hospital
Morale, pride, and spirit are important when working as a team. People with high morale tend to
possess positive and cooperative attitudes. People with pride respect themselves and their team
members. They work together successfully and are collectively joyful when goals are achieved. An
encouraging spirit among team members can be quite contagious and motivational. When morale,
pride, and spirit are present in teams, productivity is high and relationships are strong. Shared
experiences and communication are two key factors that help build morale, pride, and spirit wi…
