Langenscheidt says "notice of award". However, that doesn't sound right. Any ideas?

notice of award is correct for tenders


Explanation:
If you're talking about a big tender, then the party winning the tender receives a "notice of award". If it's just a plain old order for, let's say, the manufacture of a thousand pairs of shoes, then it's just an order. Forget the letter part. If you really want to make clear that the order was issued in writing, then you could say "written order".

neutral  Derek Gill Franßen: Without context, I would also just say "written order", unless this is the description of the "Auftrag". There is not enough context for me to say... :-) // Sorry, I felt that I had to change it after seeing the added context. ;-)

  -> That's why my answer is a bit long-winded. More context would certainly be nice!

project / bid description


Explanation:
The offer is listed under "1.2" and seems to be a seperate document. A "project description" is also a "part of the (entire) project" (=Auftragsbestandteil).
