Question description

Hey Professor,

I have another set of assignments for you. this will run the same as the last. The same form will be updated after each assignment. this will be the initial assignment.

Overview

Project contract and procurement management involves making a decision to outsource work, developing a statement of work, submitting a request for proposal, awarding the contract, and then managing the procurement until contract completion. Having a detailed procurement plan lowers the risk of nonfulfillment of contracted work. In this class, you are to develop a Contract and Procurement Plan that identifies planning and execution components from developing the statement of work through the final contract delivery. You will select a project that you may have developed in a previous class or a known project in your organization to create this plan for.

Throughout this course, you will be working on developing several components of the final Key Assignment. Additional information and the deliverables for each Individual Project (IP) will be provided in the assignment description for this project.

In this first Individual Project, you are asked to develop the outline of the sections that will be included in the Contract and Procurement Plan document, as well as a draft of a proposal to submit to your instructor. The other information you will include is a high-level description of the project that you will be conducting the project procurements for.

You will also be setting up the final Key Assignment outline that you will add to each week. The combined IP assignments will be your final Key Assignment deliverable.

Project Selection

The first step will be to select a project for which you wish to develop a Contract and Procurement Plan. This project will be used as the basis for each of the assignments throughout the course and should conform to the following guidelines:

  • Nontrivial: The selected project candidate should reflect a real-life project.
  • Domain knowledge: You will be applying knowledge of this project to address assignments related to purchasing products or services outside the project team work, which requires the fulfillment of terms laid out in a contract.

Select a project that fits these requirements, and submit your proposal to your instructor before proceeding further with the assignments in the course. Approval should be sought within the first few days of the course. Your instructor will tell you how to submit this proposal and what notification will be given for project approval.

Assignment

Your first task in this process will be to select a project to use as the basis of your Key Assignment. You will also create the shell document for the final Key Assignment document deliverable that you will be working on throughout the course. As you proceed through each phase of the project, you will add content to each section of the final document to gradually complete the final project delivery, which is the Contract and Procurement Plan.
