You are involved as project manager in a fairly large-sized project. You are in the process of making a procurement decision and plan to go with a simple purchase order. However, you are doubtful whether this is the correct thing to do and decide to find out more details about the process to be followed. Based on your findings, which of the following would be correct?
A. A simple purchase order is not appropriate for project. The project manager should always use the Request for Proposal (RFP) route.
B. Organizational process assets are guidelines available to the project. As project manager you have the final decision making authority and can decide whether to go in for a simple purchase order or not.
C. The value of the project is immaterial. As project manager, you have the final decision making authority to go in for a simple purchase order as long as you are contracting with an approved vendor
D. You would need to verify the policy constraints that form part of the Organizational process assets. Many organizations have policies that constrain procurement decisions and require use of a longer form of contract for projects above a certain value.
