    Hello Tim,

    I would like to know if you can confirm my understanding if below are the Subsidiary plans to prepare:-

    1) Procurement Management Subsidiary Plan
    2) Control Procurements - Source Selection Criteria
    3) Close Procurements - The Eight techniques

    I will be writing a section on Introduction, Challenges, Solution, Approach & Final Outcome, Lessons Learned & Critical Success Factors.

    Do advise if this is the right approach.

    Many thanks,
    Arun Kinger

    Hi, Arun - the Procurement Management Plan is the subsidiary plan, and Source Selection criteria are the documents.

    The techniques are the tools and techniques under Close Procurements - you will find 3. Look for the information on p. 386 of the PMBOK Guide; you'll find 3 of them.

    Let's separate these two out - Project 2 references Quality management, Project 1 discusses procurement management and risk management.

    We went through a project numbering change at the beginning of the year.

    I believe if you are looking for a subsidiary plan and a project document, are you not looking at Project 2?

    Thanks,

    Giving examples could also be performed by giving general examples - what would you usually see in a procurement management plan?

    How I intend to evaluate, engage, and sign (into contract) a vendor, and then manage the vendor's performance and contract would be a good start, and with a few explanations of what those mean, you probably have about 30 minutes' writing. You could also describe how you would evaluate the need for a specific type of contract, and the related terms. Remember - the procurement management plan is not the contract, but it does discuss how the contract will be created, as well as the above items.
