Project Plan

A Project Plan will help your team get organized and develop a realistic approach and schedule for completing an acquisition.  It follows the Seven Step Service Acquisition Process and contains detailed sub-steps that describe tasks that should be accomplished.   A Project Plan also includes a resource management component to identify who you need and when you will need them.


The Project Plan uses a method of planning call RACI that designates who is Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, and Informed about each task by assigning people (by name) for each of these categories.


A downloadable Microsoft Excel Project Plan template is available in SAM for you to tailor to your project needs.
