You & your group are employed by a major construction project management Company. You are one of several such teams within the Project management Office, that have been placed together for

developing a quote on a major construction project at James Cook University Cairns.
Your team is to deliver a report based on a sub-project within the main construction project. Your team is required to develop a summary preliminary scope which will include an initial constraint, stakeholder

assumption, a WBS and Schedule. These will be used to develop a proposed initial resource and budget. This report will then be the basis used by the PMO to develop an overall project tender.

The Sub-Project pre-tender Report is a structured activity requiring you to write a summary report and devise preliminary plan and budgeted costing to answer a brief based on part of the client’s request for

proposal. You will submit one tender per team. The assignment utilises components from the text book’s Integrated project (chapters 2 p87; chapter 5 p192; chapter 7 p 260; chapter 8 p 295, chapter 10

p364 and chapter 12 p 428). Templates are supplied: Kickoff meeting (needs to be adapted for following meetings); Report – used as guide for final report, additional templates for report – Budget template,

Stakeholders matrix, Risk Matrix can be used as guides and maybe adapted to suit your project. Templates can be accessed within Learnjcu.

estimates to facilitate in creating the tender to the RFP.
