IE492 – TERM PROJECT 3
DELIVERABLE #1 – PROPOSAL
• Project proposal should clearly articulate the idea and scope of the project for this
• The project topic should be significant enough to allow definition of 40-50 activities
with interdependencies (predecessors and successors).
• The deliverable has two parts:
• Part 1: Project Ideas
• List and summarize each team members’ idea considered during discussion • Each team member must
have at least one idea listed
• Decisioning process to narrow down ideas to one idea described in the proposal
• Part 2: Project Proposal
• Described selected idea and include all required sections (outlined in canvas)
• Every team member must have at least one idea put forth in the group.
• Consider the idea and allow the team member to explain and articulate
• Discuss pros and cons in terms of the project requirements and scope.
• Document pros and cons.
• Establish evaluation criteria and evaluate ideas against the same criteria.
• Develop consensus around the selected idea.
• Remember: the goal is to learn, and it is fine is the selected idea is not
directly related to your major.
PART 1 – PROJECT IDEA

• Describe decision-making process and evaluation criteria.
• List the selected project idea.
• Describe the selected project idea.
• List any additional considerations undertaken during the decision-making

• Project objective:

• Statement of Work (SoW):
• Refer to week #2 materials for statement of work.
• SOW should describe the work that needs to be achieved.
• It should be detailed enough so the reader/responding party understands the scope of work. • This
section should be more than just a few sentences; it depends of how in-depth the description is.
IE492 – TERM PROJECT 7
PART 2 (CONTD.)
• Type of Contract:
• What is the suggested type of contract for this project idea and why
• Make sure the team describes ‘why’ for full credit for this section
• Teams can go further than just Firm Fixed price (FFP) or Cost Reimbursement contracts and
specify Cost Plus Fee, Time & Materials etc. But make sure to provide justification.
• This section should include a list of deliverables that would be produced over the course of the project
including through the closing phase
• Typically required deliverables are listed in a table with following elements:
• Deliverable name
• Deliverable description
• Producer of the deliverable
• Approver of the deliverable
• Timeline when the deliverable should be produced (for lack of a schedule at this stage, it is generally
mentioned for example, 30 days within NTP where NTP is Notice to Proceed (authorization to start
PART 2 (CONTD.)
• The deliverable should have an approval section at the end.
• It is not expected that you physically sign the document (you can if you want), but putting
initials against your name in that section is fine.
• I would like the team to include the following statement in the approval section before
listing everyone’s names.
Include this statement:
“I affirm that I have contributed equally to this project deliverable, including putting forth the
project idea, participating the in discussions and decision-making, and developing the
content of the deliverable”
