PM 6000-8 – Procurement Management Plan

Subject: Business    / Management

Week Introduction:

Procurement Management Plan

A Procurement Management Plan must itemize the services, information, parts, and/or equipment that must be procured to support the execution of the tasks in the Project Schedule. For each of these procured items, the plan must specify when the procured items is needed, what the purchasing lead time is, when the Purchase Order (PO) must be released, whether inspection is required upon receipt, location of delivery, and payment terms. This level of detail is required to successfully manage procurements because delays in the release of PO’s, misunderstandings about purchasing lead time or required delivery locations, and confusion about payment terms can negatively impact the project schedule, cash flow, and budget.
