The project that you have been asked to research will be the foundation for the development of the project procurement plan. Your senior director has asked you to build a presentation that will be an overview of the project procurement plan. Diagram the procurement management process. Include in your presentation diagram how project scope is defined, make or buy analysis and how to locate potential sellers in your procurement environment or a procurement environment that may be of interest to you. Keep in mind this presentation will be the foundation for how the procurement process for the project will be performed.

Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as "speaker notes" for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Create a PowerPoint slide presentation. Think about who your target audience is and how your topic affects them.

The required length of the PowerPoint Presentation option for this assignment is 10-15 slides (with a separate reference slide). Your presentation MUST include notes containing 150-200 words per slide (this is your script). Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style.

Procurement Plan


American Property Development Corporation (APDC) a designer and developer of outdoor shopping malls and small office complexes has decided to standardize their project management practices and processes across the national organization. The goal is to standardize on one single project scheduling tool,and have the tool installed and to be operational within 90 days. To this end they are forming a central Project Management Office (PMO). Until now, project managers (there are 40 presently on staff distributed all over the USA and Canada) have been able to use whatever scheduling tool they liked, within their budget constraints. They have also been able to buy equipment and engage contractors at will. The PMO will be determining one scheduling tool that all PMs will be expected to use, exclusive of any other scheduling tools. The PMO will also develop and implement a standardized procurement process. Since the PMs are located across the USA and Canada, a web-based solution seems likely to be the most successful tool.

As the Project Manager, you have been charged with implementing the procurement process and you decide your first project will be purchasing the scheduling tool for ACME Development Corporation.

Deliverable Length: 8-12 slides w/200-250 word speaker notes per slide
Details: Now that you know what you're buying, the requirements, and the type of contract, you're ready to put the contracts out for bid. Develop a procurement plan and align it with the rest of the project plan. Note the bidding methods you will use for each contract, and how the various procurement tasks integrate with the rest of this project (buying and implementing a common project scheduling tool).

8-12 slides (with 200-250 word speaker notes per slide) are required for your presentation. Additionally, include a title and reference slide. The title slide (includes topic title, your name, etc.) makes your presentation look and appear professional. The reference slide (at the end, if used) ensures credit is acknowledged for other's work.
