REQUIREMENTS AND DUE DILIGENCE

This Chapter will review the process associated with preparing an effective requirements definition. The requirements definition is probably the most important step in the System procurement process. Without a clear definition of what you expect the System to do, the vendor cannot help but ultimately fail. The requirements definition can subsequently be used as the basis of a Request for Proposal (RFP). The RFP can in-turn be used to compare, evaluate and rate each vendor's proposed System.
