assignment DB need original work in APA format 2 references 304 paragraph $5
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn
through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content
and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way
dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be
accepted after the end of each unit.
Blanton Reeve is a supplier for a medium-sized housewares
company. Jerry, the newly hired procurement manager for the housewares
company, studied all of the files for information on all of the current
suppliers. In examining the file for Blanton Reeve, Jerry discovered
that during the contract negotiation process, another firm should have
been awarded the contract. Jerry researched more into the details of the
contract with Blanton Reeve and Jon Johnson, the former procurement
manager who awarded the contract to Reeve. Jerry learned that Johnson’s
son began working for Blanton soon after the contract was awarded.
Currently, Johnson works for another firm that has ties to Blanton
Discuss the key ethical issues in business contracting, answering the following questions:
- Is there evidence of bribery by Blanton Reeve to secure a contract?
- How should Jerry proceed from this point forward?
- What are the consequences to ABC if Jerry overlooked this as a coincidence?
