Answer the following questions based upon the Kloppenborg text and Exhibits presented in the chapter. The length of the paper should be enough pages to properly and fully answer all the exercise questions.

1. Briefly provide an overview of the project (answer the basics who, what, where, when and why). Also, provide the source for the information discovered.
2. Using the ideas in Exhibit 13.2, speculate on what activities, supplies, or services could be contracted out.
3. Create a request for information (RFI) for one portion of the project work that could be contracted out.
4. Using ideas from Exhibits 13.4 and 13.5, determine criteria you would use to select sellers for the portion of contract work under consideration.
