When should I create a Procurement Plan, and for what types of projects?
Well, you really need a Procurement Plan for projects which involve the purchase of goods and services from external suppliers. While a Procurement Plan may be created for internal goods and services purchased with an organization typically Procurement Plans are used for purchasing from external organizations. You can create a Procurement Plan by setting out all of the items you wish to procure and setting out a schedule for purchasing those items from the external market place. It is important to research all of the available suppliers and make a strategic decision on which of the suppliers should be used for the purchasing of goods and services.
