12.0 Project Procurement Mgt.
The unique needs of projects play a role in procurement based on things such as the location of sellers and whether or not they are in the same time zone or country. Tailoring project needs based on procurement complexity is also a consideration. A project may need multiple sellers or a series of different contracts at key milestones throughout the project. It is the project manager’s responsibility to determine the specific needs of the project and ensure the availability of contractors is consistent with the work requirements of the project.
