A Petition Letter (Letter of request) is a document used to request a product, service or supply from an official institution.
As this is a document for official use, the language used is formal and its component parts are clearly defined, as follows:
- Place and date of its compilation.
- Company identification: This document has a standardized key, depending on the agency that generates it, to identify it and refer to it in future documents.
- Recipient: The name of the position, department and office where the person to whom it is addressed is located.
- Purpose: This section clearly and concisely explains what the scriptures teach.
Referral: if the Petition Letter has precedents, the previous letters are noted.
- The main part of the official letter – this is a description of the request made.
- Goodbye: courtesy text that indicates the end of the letter and if you are waiting for an answer, ask for it in a friendly way.
- Signature: Position, name and title of the person who filled it out.
- Distribution: A list of people to send a copy of the Petition Letter to.
