Content Your boss is already knowledgeable about  the topic. Don’t waste space explaining the  basics. Recommend a course of action: either  a  policy/ change in policy;  or  a strategy to  implement your policy. Explain why your recommendation is the  best option.

Conclusion Ends the paper. Reminds policymaker why some kind of  action is necessary. May be a ‘call to arms’  – the only point in the memo where  rhetoric may be appropriate.
