Contract statement of work

This section discusses the statement of work used to contract curriculum development.

Project Name: Installation of technology lab

Contract Name: Curriculum development

Scope of Work

The project aims to install a technology lab that helps to deliver quality music services to the customers. However, the extent of the contract is limited to developing a curriculum. It includes planning for the project activities, how to implement it and monitor the entire project. The successful vendor has to schedule how the project will commence and determine the phases of the project. The project team must approve each step of drafting a curriculum before moving to the next level. Besides, the contractor must complete the scheduling according to the instructions of the project team as well as expected commence time. Selected vendor must have adequate resources to complete the curriculum in time as the project itself is running out of time.

Location of Work

The work is located in Sydney Australia in the central business district. The location is efficient because most of the target customers are from the urban areas who want to nurture their music talents. Moreover, the location is appropriate for the internet connection that is accessed conveniently.

Period of Performance

Creating a curriculum of the project is expected to take one month starting October 15th and end 15th November. It implies that the scheduling contract will last for 30 days only. Therefore, the work must be completed within the stipulated time. However, if the modification is needed, a request should be made to the project committee for review regarding the extension of project time.

Deliverables Schedule

Firstly, the contract must be completed within one month. The deliverables of the project include phases of the project and how to evaluate them. The selected contractor must produce the first draft after two weeks after awarding the tender. Further, the schedule needs to indicate the resources required to implement the project. Moreover, skills needed to implement the plan must be shown as well as any relevant training.

Applicable Standards

Most of the curriculum development work will be done at the premises of the vendor. However, it should be created in consultation with the project team so as to align the project goals. Moreover, the project must indicate the legal policies and standards so that it does not contradict formal regulations. Weekly meetings are crucial to the project team and the selected vendor to deliberate on the progress. Final analysis of the curriculum will take place in the technology lab to ensure adequate facilities are developed to enable appropriate implementation of the curriculum.

Acceptance Criteria:

The acceptance of the project curriculum is the responsibility of the management team. The project members are included at every stage of drafting the curriculum so that no mistakes made. Once the contractor has completed the curriculum, he or she hands it to the project manager who reviews it together with other project members and approves or disapprove. It is examined based on the checklists or expected specifications to ensure it meets the required standards.

Special Requirements

The vendor will be included in the process of implementing the curriculum. They will provide sufficient advice and support monitoring the timetable of the curriculum. Once the project is completed successfully, the relationship with the vendor is closed and recommendation is provided.

In conclusion, this contract statement of work has discussed the deliverables and requirements to help purchase the curriculum. It helps to select the most competent vendor to develop a curriculum for the project.

  1. Do you think the project met its scope?

  1. The criteria for success

The criteria include effective planning and monitoring. The project was implemented according to the plan. Monitoring was also done weekly and made correction where there were deviations.

  1. Reflection on the success of the project

It was met because it was implemented in phases. For instance, weekly meetings contributed to understanding the progress loopholes and making necessary changes.

  1. Appropriate lessons learned from the project completion

The first lesson is appropriate scheduling. It helps to avoid time wastage. The other lesson learned is that success of a project depends on the skills of the project management team. Moreover, availability of resources determines project effectiveness. The key resources required include finance, human skills and equipment.

  1. Things that went right

The project was successful because of careful planning and adhering to the plan. The first thing that well was time management. The strategies employed to keep the project scope effectively include scheduling and prioritizing that contributed to performing tasks at the right time.

  1. Things that went wrong

On the other hand, the wrong thing during the project implementation is the inadequacy of resources. The estimated resources were not adequate, and this affected the implementation of the schedule. For instance, the purchase of the equipment was delayed because of the inadequate funding.

  1. Things to do differently in the following projects

First thing to improve in the next project is project scheduling. It is important because it helps to ensure no delays when executing the activities (Martin 2002). The other thing to do is to mobilize resources sufficiently so that there is no stoppage due to inadequate materials. For instance, the project sponsor should raise adequate funds according to project approximation.
