Procurement SOW - It is something like group of Scope statement which may trigger a project in seller organization. You can assume which is input to Develop project Charter in seller organization. It should be Detail information, Completion criteria.


Procurement documents - To provide the seller with as clear a picture as possible of what needs to be done to win the work and what the work involves. request for proposal (RFP), invitation for bid (IFB), request for quote (RFQ), request for information (RFI) all these are Procurement documents

From Rita,
- Background information about why the buyer wants the work done
- Procedures for trying to win the work (if there will be a bidder conference, he the responses are due, how the winner will be selected, etc.)
- Guidelines for preparing the response (maximum length, topics to address in the response, etc.)
- The exact format the response should be in (forms to fill out, whether e-mail submissions are allowed, etc.)
- Source selection criteria the criteria the buyer will use to evaluate responses from the sellers (number of years in business, quality of the response, price, etc.)
- Pricing forms (forms to adequately describe the price to the buyer

Procurement SOW - is legally binding , signed contract which details scope of work

procurement document - any supporting documents used during the procurement process, are not legally binding
