Edit of the Week

Most proposals include a section entitled something like "Key Personnel" or "Resumes" that summarizes the qualifications of the people who will carry out the contract if it is awarded to the bidder.

As you know, the present tense is used to describe one's current position; the past tense for previous experience.

Thus, today I would lead a team; yesterday I led a team.

This past week's proposal work saw countless examples of people who sort of went back to the future.
