IT requirements are not always completely spelled out in a proposal.
So, it is incumbent on the PM to carefully assess these needs both from a Project Team support perspective and IT system solution delivery needs. Identify IT hardware and software needed to support Project Team daily activities and to implement engineering prototyping, design, development, and test requirements.
Your company’s IT department can assist with this assessment. Where necessary, additional and/or changed IT requirements may have to be factored into your revised budget and then discussed with your client through the contracts department. In some cases, some of this hardware and software will be provided as Government Furnished Property by your customer.
