Using alternatives specified in the PMBOK® Guide, discuss what kind of contract pricing might be best for the following procurement situations. Arrange to select a topic “round-robin style” so that you select the next topic that has not already been discussed. Which of these topics are better served using one of these contract vehicles: Fixed Price, Cost Plus (Cost Reimbursable), or Time & Material contracts? Be sure to define each of these contracts before aligning a topic.

  2. Landscaping your company’s grounds
  3. Developing a new software module
  4. Purchasing new desktop computers
  5. Conducting a survey of employee attitudes
