This is a book about project management, that portion of the project which will be performed by another organization. It focuses on the procurement of scope from an organization outside of the project. Often, the success or failure of a project is dependent on how well the project can plan, define, solicit, authorize and manage this external relationship.Not all project procurements are the same. Unless the project carefully makes an assessment of the items it will make, versus the items it will buy, and then adequately plans for these purchases, the risks of performance will increase. Project procurements are simply sub-projects which need to be managed well, not blindly delegated to an independent organization to buy for the project. Certain procurements, major complexity developments, creating something new which doesn't exist, according to the project's unique specification, must be managed by the project team, and supported by the professional procurement organization. The project's team leader must assume the management responsibility.This book parallels the six processes contained in Chapter 12 (Project Procurement Management) of the Project Management Institute's world standard A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, the PMBOK Guide r, 2000 Edition. The author was privileged to be a member of the eight person core team which updated this document, and was assigned responsibility for all earned value management content, as well as Chapter 12 covering Project Procurement Management.
