Scope of Work/Statement of Requirement

Hello Everyone,

I am currently a procurement specialist with experience in strategic sourcing. I would like to ask if anyone could share a sample statement of requirement/scope of work they have found helpful to adapt or perhaps a procedure on how to write adequate statement of requirement/scope of work. Thank you.

Greetings, thanks for the question. I look forward to the responses from other practitioners in this space too. In the meantime, I suggest you take a look at our contract standards clause library here: www.contractstandards.com/public/contracts/statement-of-work. While this provides a framework, the key is in the level of detail that you apply to the "Supplier Tasks and Responsibilities" section - the detail required is application-specific, so there are no hard and fast rules. I have used detailed project plans and, in some instances, references to operational collateral (handbooks, processes, and procedures, referenced but not included) to get to the level of detail necessary to define what is required. This works fine for transactional engagements but cannot cope with more complex requirements - where there is uncertainty in delivery or deliverable (or both!). Then, you'll need an agile approach to the SOW. Hope that helps.
