I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking this type of question, but here goes: I am currently working as a junior software developer in the Information Systems department of a large organization. Recently,there has been a change in the management of our department and our new general manager wants me to respond to a request for expression of interest generated by another large organization requiring some software development.
He insists that since I have an MSc in Engineering with Business Management, I should be the one to do it whereas I don't even have a clue of where to begin since I haven't even encountered the term EOI (Expression of Interest) during my studies. I want to clarify to the GM that I'm not the right person for the job without coming off as irresponsible or unprofessional and making a first bad impression.
So my question is, how should I deal with this? I have tried googling for sample EOIs but they haven't been much help to me at all. Is there a specific designation/role in an organization, like someone in finance or inventory control etc. who should write such a document? Or should I take it as a challenge and start adapting?
