The assignment is to develop a research paper. Review the industry sector assigned to you and provide an in-depth analysis of IT Procurement (products and services) challenges within your industry and provide recommendations on how to overcome those challenges. (Quality of discussion is important than the quantity i.e. marks will be awarded to the depth of your analysis, not to the ‘number’ of challenges identified.)

- Procurement’s role in supporting Business Strategy
- Organisational structures within the industry sector
- Purchasing Procedures specific to the industry sector
- Legal aspects that are important to the industry sector
