Week 3 - Assignment 1: Critique Contract Management's Role in Creating Scope Statements and Source

For this assignment, using the Procurement Project Plan Template, you will create your own scope statement for a project of choice using the Procurement Project Plan Template. The project of choice must involve a real-world global or community solution context. Meaning, that you may consider completing a project scope for a Nongovernmental Organization (NGO) project to address a global need (i.e. agricultural sustainability, global poverty). For more U.S. related community solutions, you may develop a scope to address factors that inevitably impact underserved or impoverished communities (i.e. urban farming, food deserts, sustainable employment/housing opportunities, educational equity). This scope statement will be included in your Procurement Management Plan Template for this week. Be sure to include all the factors listed here:

Work, use the following numbered layout:

  1. Introduction

    • Give a brief overview of what you want to buy (i.e., the commodity or service you require).

    • Briefly describe why this commodity or service is necessary.

  2. Scope

    • Define the work to be accomplished in clear and precise terms and then indicate the main steps and actions which are required of the vendor.

    • Outline the various phases of the work.

    • Describe where the service will occur (i.e., on-site or off-site).

    • Describe the schedule/timeline for work to begin, including any milestones, and when it should be completed (i.e., from beginning date to end date).

    • Discuss specific technical objectives and any special conditions or limitations.

  3. Documents to Be Supplied or Referenced by the Organization/Entity

    • Cite all application documents, specifications, reports, regulations, and other materials which have an impact on the procurement.

  4. Reports, Data, and Deliverables

    • Describe what you want the vendor to deliver during and at the end of the services they will perform.

    • Describe any weekly, monthly, and final reports you may require.

  5. Special Consideration

    • Describe if the organization/entity will provide a vendor to use.

    • Discuss if you will pay the vendor for its travel expenses.

    • Does travel expense include airfare, rental car, gas parking, hotel, food, or other expenses?

    • Do you expect to pay the vendor upon job completion, or will you allow multiple payments based upon each milestone completion?

You will create a SOW to add to the procurement plan in Week 8's Signature Assignment. This is a building assignment, so please use a procurement opportunity of interest. Before envisioning your statement of work, be sure to view the Sample SOW located in the books and resources section of this week.

Length: 1 SOW (Statement of Work) (not including title and references pages)

References: Include a minimum of 3 scholarly resources.

The completed assignment should address all of the assignment requirements, exhibit evidence of concept knowledge, and demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the content presented in the course. The writing should integrate scholarly resources, reflect academic expectations and current APA standards, and adhere to Northcentral University's Academic Integrity Policy.

When applicable, conduct a Turnitin pre-check and then upload your completed assignment and click the Submit to Dropbox button.
