How do I quote a milestone date when I don't know the award date

I hope Guru will respond to this question. As a Guru professional, I find the bidding process to be extremely confusing. It seems to be impossible to provide an accurate guesstimate of milestone and project completion dates if you: 1) don't have a thorough understanding of the project (scope, phases, involvement of other Gurus, the employer's scheduling needs). Many times, the project description lacks specificity (I've seen project descriptions as open-ended as "write me a book about horses"). I don't have the experience of an employer, but would be interested in employers' opinions.
Back in the day, Gurus simply placed their bids by entering the project cost. It worked fine. Why complicate the process?
Guru...please tell me what I'm missing here.
