The NYS Forum's IT Procurement, Project Management and Business Analysis Work Groups are happy to announce our upcoming informational event, "IT Project Scoping for Successful Projects" to be held March 14, 2018.

A well-defined and articulated project scope is an essential building block to a successful procurement and therefore a successful project. This session will feature presenters highlighting best practices in the scoping of IT projects from the perspectives of both Public Sector buyers and Private Sector experts. The session will also include a panel discussion featuring experienced buyers and sellers, sharing their insights on critical "Do's and Don'ts" in effectively defining the scope of projects, particularly from the perspective of procuring services to successfully deliver the projects.

Our goal is to help our audience to learn from seasoned professionals who have successfully defined / scoped and delivered significant IT projects.

Who should attend: Stakeholders in the Public Sector who have any involvement in defining scope of projects, developing RFP's, managing the delivery of projects. Private Sector individuals who have involvement in responding to RFP's, particularly those who are responsible for defining the scope of services offered in proposals, service delivery managers, Project Managers, Business Analysts, etc.
