I just had that happen to us with a foundation grant. Instead of just asking us what our goals are, they wanted to see the whole plan. I really think the strategic plans are going to become a deciding factor more and more.

And to add to it...
I just submitted a federal grant proposal that required a summary of our strategic plan. The Institute of Museum & Library Services obviously underwent a recent strategic planning process itself. IMLS found so much value in the plan development, they required that applicant organizations demonstrate a link between their Museums for America proposal to the applicant organization's current strategic plan. Connection to IMLS strategic priorities was strongly suggested too.
Watch for this from other agencies...
