In the previous weeks, you selected a project to develop your Contract and Procurement Plan Key Assignment around. In Week 1, you provided compelling documentation on make versus buy, which led to determining a contract type that you would outsource the work with. In Week 2, you developed a detailed statement of work, included it in a formal RFP, and developed the section criteria to select the source the contract would be awarded to. In Week 3, you evaluated all of the risks involved with procuring out this work and determined what the overall management and contract administration processes would be. In Week 4, you implemented processes for change control and quality control to reduce some of the risks identified in Week 3.
At this point, you are planning for procurement closure, which includes attention being given to the legal aspects, rights, and responsibilities as well as all of the closure activities. In the final week, you are also revising the Key Assignment draft document based on feedback from your instructor and peers.

- Update the Key Assignment document title page with the new date and project name.
