Dear Mr. Peter C. Cromwell:
Thank you for meeting with us to present your proposal for our company's retirement plan. It was obvious that you had spent a lot of time preparing your presentation. continued below...
I am sorry to inform you that the board decided to accept the proposal of another provider with lower administrative fees. We will review this decision on an annual basis, so feel free to keep in touch about future opportunities.
Best wishes in your business.

236 Campbell Road, Suite 167
Las Vegas, NV 78193
Dear Ms. Baumbeck:
Thank you again for taking the time to meet with me and present your proposal. I certainly appreciate the amount of time and effort I know that you must have spent putting it together.
After carefully reviewing all the proposals that were presented we have decided to select a different vendor. There were some deciding factors that went into making our decision. First we took a look at the vendor’s ability to perform. Second we looked carefully at the ability of the vendor to be able to meet their promised completion date. Finally, we considered the overall cost of the project.
Again, thank you for taking the time and I look forward to possibly receiving future proposals from you.

Westminster Interior Design, Inc. Ms. Alexis A. Flexington
908 Columbus Way
Denver, CO 89056
Dear Ms. Flexington:
Thank you very much for presenting a very well thought out design for our new Operating Room Waiting Area. I especially appreciate the way in which you incorporated existing aspects of our facility.
However, after we carefully reviewed all the other proposals we did not choose your design. This in no way takes away from the creativity and thoughtfulness you incorporated into it. The selection panel had two primary reasons for selecting a different design. First the fabric choices met the national healthcare requirements. Second the overall cost met our goals.
Again, Ms. Flexington, we appreciate your submission and the time you took to provide it.

Amis, CO 89021
Dear Mr. Arnold A. Smith:
I truly appreciate the offer to join Donaldson Hotel and Resorts as Finance Director.
I was able to evaluate your offer in great detail. I was very impressed with the team I had the pleasure of meeting with during the interview process. I was equally impressed with the solid financial position your Company is in even though other similar Company’s are struggling.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to accept your job offer at this time due to personal reasons that have made it impossible for me to relocate now.
However, I expect to have this situation resolved within the next twelve months and would be very grateful if you would continue to keep me in mind for future opportunities.

Mr. Alan R. Harrison
16 Prince William Sound Drive
Although I am certain it would have been a very rewarding experience I have accepted another offer from a local company. This will allow my older son to finish his junior and senior year at the same local high school where he began.
Again, Mr. Harrison, I appreciate your confidence in my abilities and I would like very much to be reconsidered in a couple of years when my son graduates.

45 Oak Tress Place, Suite 234
Brooklyn, NY 98501
Dear Ms. Iverson:
Although I am flattered that you have offered me the position of Sales Manager for Colby Industries, I must decline. The salary and commission structure you presented does not meet my requirements.
I was truly looking forward to a mutually rewarding experience.
I wish you and your Company nothing but success in the future, and again thank you.

A follow up call is mostly very important. This is a call made to the concerned party informing them of the decision reached. When you make this call you have to politely indicate that you have offered up the position or deal to someone else. You should also take that opportunity to thank the applicants or parties involved for their time and interest.
The next step is to write the person or party involved. The information you had given on the first step of the phone call should be therefore included in the letter. You should also ensure that the party feels welcomed and appreciated for the time. Trashing efforts is not ideal since you need each person for the success of your operation.
Personalizing the letters is also important. The concerned parties should feel that they are being addressed. There should also be part of it that encourages them to apply for other positions if you strongly believe that they qualify. Letters that sound professional are ideal. They should however have a humane touch where the parties concerned are appreciated.
Reputation can be irreparably damaged if the let off letters are not ideally written. Writing a business rejection letter should be carefully done with someone who understands the elements contained therein. Writers should not puncture the hopes of concerned parties by being so negative.
Good Luck and May God Bless You!
