Project Planning

I can do #1 and 2 completed I only need help with #3 PART 1 (it will say DO THIS ONE by it, please!

1. Project Overview
a. Develop a Project Introduction based on the following criteria.
1) You have decided to build a garage with living quarters. An architectural plan must be developed and approved by the city planning commission. You have over one acre of land with a two-bedroom ranch house. Your proposal to add this building has already been approved. You have selected a builder and need to have the project completed within 90 days, when your mother is due to arrive for an extended stay.
2) You know from your builder that you will need to select the following resources:
a) Plumber
b) Electrician
c) General laborer
d) Another contractor who can prepare the site and lay the foundation.
3) You will have to plan for others to participate in the design and approval of the plan, inspections, and furnishings. You will need approval from the city for every step of this project management plan. You must plan two inspections for plumbing and electrical work. You will reserve final payment for services upon completion of stated objectives.
4) You will need to stay on top of this plan in order for the structure to be completed by the time your mother arrives in 90 days.
5) You are prepared to spend no more than $75,000 for this project.

3. Part 1: Project Introduction (DO THIS ONE, PLEASE!)
Discuss the nature of the selected project. Include the plan's need(s), objectives (in the form of a Statement of Work), and the approach or methodology to be used to achieve the objectives. Include a project organization chart depicting team-member functions and the organization's chain of command. List the tasks to be accomplished during the course of developing the plan. Finally, outline all expected conflicts that might occur during the implementation of your project, explain why the conflicts are expected to occur, and the conflict-resolution process that will be used for each situation.
Project objectives (DO THIS ONE, PLEASE)
Quantify the measurable performance expectations of the plan in order to determine whether or not it met the planned objectives. Performance should be defined in terms of product or process specification, total budget at the completion of the plan, and the time frame for plan completion. The stated objectives become exit criteria in determining whether or not the plan was successful at completion. Identify the potential risks that would prevent the plan's objectives from being met on time and within budget. Present a contingency that would manage the risks, should they actually occur. The risk mitigation plan should identify risks and the severity ranking for each risk. For the most severe risks, a risk mitigation strategy should be developed, including the triggering event and the responsible party.

The paper should include the following components:
1) Background and statement of need
Background and statement of need consists of a description of the organization, the problem(s) that need to be solved, and the event(s) that led to the need for a management plan. Discuss the benefits a successful completion of the plan would have on the organization.

2) Project objectives
Quantify the measurable performance expectations of the plan in order to determine whether or not it met the planned objectives. Performance should be defined in terms of product or process specification, total budget at the completion of the plan, and the time frame for plan completion. The stated objectives become exit criteria in determining whether or not the plan was successful at completion. Identify the potential risks that would prevent the plan's objectives from being met on time and within budget. Present a contingency that would manage the risks, should they actually occur. The risk mitigation plan should identify risks and the severity ranking for each risk. For the most severe risks, a risk mitigation strategy should be developed, including the triggering event and the responsible party.

3) Project selection criteria
Compare and contrast project selection models. Select a model and justify the project using criteria defined in the reading material or other reference sources.
