Review these scenarios:

  1. Your boss owns 2,000 shares of stock of one of the vendors, his wife works for another vendor, and he is on the procurement selection committee for the project.
  2. A third vendor in contention for this project has offered everyone on your team tickets to the hockey game this weekend in the company box with dinner included.
  3. Your stock broker is recommending the purchase of a technology mutual fund that contains stock belonging to several of the vendors in contention.

The below deliverables should cover 2 pages and should be done and delivered to me first.
As a team, develop Project Procurement Management Plan for the E-mail Upgrade Project described in the Scenario. The Plan should consist of the following sections:

1.0 Overview: describe the Procurement Management Process you will use (1-2 paragraphs)
2.0 Contract Planning (2-3 pages): Individual Deliverable.
2.1 Write a statement of work (SOW) describing the project deliverables and scope of the effort. You will need to make creative assumptions based on the outline provided in the scenario. The emphasis here is on demonstrating your understanding of the content or type of information that would be contained in a SOW
2.2 Identify two potential types of contracts you would consider, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of each.
The deliverables below should be second and be delivered after the first one.
