This activity is part of the Preparing section of the Project Flow. Preparation starts as soon as you have the idea or offer for the project, and ends with the decision to execute/accept the project, or drop it. Checking the feasibility or possible options for the project happens in this section as well.
This is an optional activity for projects that have external suppliers. You can select none, some, or all of them in this point, or in activity A13. It’s preferred to do it as soon as possible.
Remember that Supplier PMs have an important role in your project structure, and you need to be careful with the selection.
When you’re done with this activity, add the information about the new supplier and their Project Manager to the Project Summary.
