On Sunday morning, Dr Haass tweeted: "up & working on new draft, integrating as best we can suggestions from parties. goal to produce/circulate new (3rd) draft early afternoon."
The revised proposal document was presented to politicians on Sunday afternoon ahead of round table talks on Monday morning.
Prior to this, the political parties spent the weekend examining and responding to the contents of Dr Haass's second draft.
The former US envoy to Northern Ireland said on Friday that he and vice-chair Meghan O'Sullivan will stay in Northern Ireland until Christmas.
He declared that "no stone has been left unturned" in the bid to resolve contentious issues in Northern Ireland.
Dr Haass gave himself the end-of-year deadline and, if a deal is not agreed on Monday, his team will return to the region on Friday to strive to find resolutions before the New Year.
