Your task
Individually, you are required to prepare a Statement of Work (SOW) based on your tender for the Lot
Fourteen project that you have prepared in the first assessment.

Assessment Description
The purpose of this assessment is to foster students’ ability to evaluate and determine project viability,
including the analysis required in the selection process. Students will also be given an opportunity to
demonstrate the necessary evaluative criteria for the success of projects based on an organisation’s
goals, strategy and standards.

Assessment Instructions
Presume that the project stakeholders accepted your tender from Assessment 1. Now you are required
to prepare the Statement of Work (SOW) submission based on the information contained in the case
study and the details in the first assessment. As the Lot Fourteen project is a reallife case study, you
are expected to complement your work with additional research on the project and its site.

Your Statement of Work submission must contain all the required elements, including an introduction,
scope, location, main tasks, milestones, deliverables, schedule, standards, success criteria,
requirements, budget outlines, any other relevant information, and a closing statement. Please ensure
that you attend the live assessment webinar, as your subject coordinator will provide you with an SOW
template that you must use in this assessment.

While this is a written analysis, you can include any tables, analysis or diagrammatical elements you
deem appropriate. You will be required to use a minimum of 15 sources in your Statement of Work, 5 of
which must come from academic journals or textbooks. These sources must be presented as intext
citations and a reference list adhering to the Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style. Wikipedia and other
‘popular’ sites are not to be used.
