Planning forpurchases and acquisitions, requests for proposal, vendor selection, contractadministration, and contract closure are integral parts of the process. Learning fromcasestudies and benchmarking against better practices, standards and excellence is vital tounderstand complexity of issues and successful strategies for procurement and contractmanagement. It will also ensure improved responsiveness to key issues, promote supplierclient relationships through proactive management of risks and ultimately deliver higherlevel of focus on performance-based outcomes.Specific (Assessment 2 Context)Assessment 2 is about uncovering complexities in the procurement context generally,identifying key issues, looking at leadership, governance and key themes that will allowimproved focus, and learning.Assessment 2 is based on understanding the case study and other module LearningResources. Students are encouraged to look at the Essential and Highly Recommended LearningResources and other public documents associated with the case study. However, a careful thorough review of the report is required to understand thecontracts and procurement issues that have arisen during the project execution,ongoing risks mitigations and lessons learnt that can be applied to other largeinfrastructure projects. Assessment 2 aims to encourage a deeper understanding of the challenges faced in largecomplex projects – particularly with procurement methods that involve private-sectorfinance to deliver complex projects – which is a significant method of procurementbecause it can mobilise global financial and procurement capability to innovatively buildpublic infrastructure and facilities to meet the needs of the growing population. Students are also encouraged to understand and explore the related organisationalissues, stakeholders and the funding and finance aspects associated with the project.PROJ6004 Assessment 2 Brief .docxPage 3 of 7Instructions:Assessment 2 Individual Report (overall 2,400 Words) is designed around analyzing theprocurement in the case study project. This assessment comprises of three parts: Part A: Introduce and summarise the procurement context and scope (life cyclejourneyof the case study project). Identify the project procurement components and tenderevaluation that may have been used in the case study (according to your knowledgefrom the theory you have studied). Part B: Describe the complexities (and key issues/risks), discuss the project environmentand organisation aspects, leadership and governance and how these have influencedoutcomes. Part C: Identify or suggest key mitigations and possible learnings. Explain how thoselearnings may require changes to roles and responsibilities of key project resources,changes to procurement briefs or specifications, scope and the procurement processitself. Identify dependencies and common themes.Learning Activities and Output:The learning process will involve the deconstruction of the case study material toanswerquestions, examine lessons learnt and highlight issues for further discussion. You will beencouraged to reflect on your case study findings in order to identify contracts andprocurement management best practices which can be applied in the future to significantprojects that you may lead as project manager or oversee in a senior role.PROJ6004 Assessment 2 Brief .docxPage 4 of 7Learning Resources: Resource on APA style:The URL/page for the TUA referencing guides is http://onlinelibrary.tua.edu.au/skills/referencing Resource on report writing:Victoria University of Wellington (2013).
