In Module Three, you will submit a procurement regulations and source selection document with more of your analysis for your selected case study.
First, consider the critical elements in Section III of the final project. Then discuss the impact of government regulations on procurement, the regulatory differences for procurements between the United States and another country, and potential regulatory effects for your selected procurement scenario. Second, consider the critical elements in Section IV of the final project, analyze and choose a set of parameters that you feel are useful for evaluating vendor proposals, develop a vendor evaluation tool, and assess its usefulness for proposal evaluation and selection in your scenario. The relevant critical elements of the final project, Sections III and IV, are repeated below.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed in your analysis: III. Procurement Regulations in United States and Abroad a. Discuss procurement regulations required by local, regional, and federal governments with regard to specific types of procurements executed in the United States (e.g., Manchester, NH). b. Discuss procurement regulations required by local, regional, and federal governments with regard to specific types of procurements executed internationally (e.g., Manchester, UK). c. Summarize the differences between the domestic and international procurement regulations discussed above. d. Determine which procurement regulations would apply to the procurement plan in the case study, and explain your reasoning. In other words, will you be required to follow domestic or international regulations, or both? Why?
IV. Source Selection a. Describe common source selection criteria used to evaluate vendor proposals. b. Select an appropriate vendor evaluation tool suitable for identifying vendors for the procurement plan in the case study. The tool you select should employ appropriate selection criteria and be capable of producing a summary evaluation score. c. Assess the vendor evaluation tool produced for its effectiveness in satisfying the project requirements and providing maximum value to the buyer in the case study.
Guidelines for Submission: The procurement regulations and source selection document should be two to four pages in length, and must be written in APA format. Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.
