The Course Project for PROJ598 consists of two parts, which provide familiarization to
processes associated with contract and procurement management.
Part 1 (PP1) of the Course Project focuses on writing an RFP and entails selecting one
of the three RFP procurement cases listed under the PP1 section or one of your choosing
and using the PP1Course Project RFP template document in the Doc Sharing area to
develop information to support a completed RFP suitable for submission to vendors.
Part 2 (PP2) covers all of the TCOs but touches mainly upon textbook Chapters 9
through 12 of World Class Contracting and PMBOK Guide Chapter 12. You will be
required to identify an opportunity through and follow the
instructions, which are located in Doc Sharing.
Project Part 1
Assignment: Project Part 1 (PP1) entails completing a Request for Proposal (RFP). You
may select one of the below procurement cases or use one of your own appropriate
procurement cases as the basis for creating an RFP.
RFP Procurement Cases
Select one of the following RFP procurement cases to develop your PP1 RFP.
A New Practice Field
You own a semipro baseball team (in the location of your choice) and you want to
construct a new practice field. You own the land already (20 acres). The land is
relatively flat and it has only a few dilapidated structures (barns) and trees on it.
Connecting up with existing water and sewer lines would present no unusual technical
problems. It is now September, and you would love to have that field ready to go by
March 2 years hence. Your vision would include the playing field, a small clubhouse,
and a parking area that would hold about 50 cars. No spectator seating would be
required. The decision to go with one general contractor has already been made.
An Environmental Impact Study You are a general contractor wishing to put up a
modest-sized concrete production plant on the outskirts of town. The plant would
operate on only one 10-hour shift per day and would produce about 400 cubic yards of
output per day for 6 days per week. It is necessary for an environmental impact study to
be undertaken before the county can issue a permit. The biggest issue is, of course, the
air quality implications of concrete production, but potential impacts on water quality
are of concern as well. It is now October, and you want to start building the plant by the
end of next summer, if at all possible. It is now time to issue an RFP to procure an
environmental impact analysis. Studies of this type normally require about 3 months of

concerted effort by a team of analysts.

An Inventory Control System You sell seeds from a catalog, and business has been
blossoming. However, your inventory tracking system is inadequate. In high season,
supply outages have been frequent, and customer complaints over delays have been
increasing. You fear that your business will die on the vine unless something is done to
improve things. You want to hire a management consultant to design a new inventory
tracking system. This kind of work normally requires about 6 months worth of effort. It
is now May. You need to issue an RFP for this work. The procurement will be for the
design stage onlyimplementation may or may not be handled under a separate
contract at a later date.
RFP Content
Your RFP should utilize the best practices of the pre-award phase listed in the text that
apply to your project. You must choose the type of contract (Fixed Price, Cost-Plus,
Time and Materials, etc) that you feel is most appropriate for this procurement. I will
set the length limit at a minimum of 15 double-spaced pages (12-point font) for the main
body of the RFP, no more than 20 pages. You may attach additional appendices if you
wish, but these must be limited to clarifying material that has been borrowed from
elsewhere or developed as an exhibit and they are not included as part of the minimum
15 page limit.
The first page of your overall submission must be a cover sheet that contains the project
title (hopefully, not PP1 or anything like itbe inventive), your name, your e-mail
address, and course identifying information (e.g., PROJ598 for this term will suffice
, use the correct term identifier). The second page will be a Table of Contents (TOC)
listing the major RFP sections together with page numbers. The next 1 15 pages
constitute the main body of the RFP. Remember ALL sections in the template are
graded components, so remember to complete each section and sub-section. You should
not have any sections that are not applicable (N/A) or to be determined (TBD) in the
proposal. Include a reference page at the end of the proposal listing the references
that you used in the RFP preparation in APA format, including websites, if any. Dont
forget to cite any sources in the text of your paper using APA format as well. This is an
academic assignment, therefore APA format is required. Appendix B contains a list of
suppliers to whom you would send the RFP. These must be real bona fide contractors
not hypothetical ones. On that page, explain how you chose these potential suppliers and
why they are acceptable for your project. Be detailed with your explanation. The cover
sheet, TOC, reference page, and supplier list do not count toward the 15-page minimum.
The structure should, therefore be
Cover sheet (one page)
Table of contents (one page)
RFP main body (Minimum of 15 pages)
References in APA format (no page limit)
Appendices (no page limit)
Appendix B: Supplier list (one page)
