I submitted a proposal on Nov 3rd. Client has not accepted/rejected the proposal. There are no other bidders.

Is there a consensus on how long a proposal is valid? Seems to me that 30 days is more than reasonable.

This is something that really should be specified in the proposal. It removes a potential difference of opinion between you and the client - and saves ever needing to ask the question.

I suggest a follow-up call requesting feedback on the proposal. If the client either rejects or accepts your offer the question is moot. If they dither then you can place a time limitation on the quoted price, if not the entire proposal.

I have a statement like, "Proposal is good for 30 days from the date of proposal".

I give an absolute end date for the proposal, as "This proposal good through December 31, 2004 11:59 pm".
