2. Identify resources.
Identify, in advance, any internal project resources that will work with
the solutions provider, such as project manager/day-to-day contact, IT

immediately. Time and money will be wasted if no one knows where to get
What to Expect: A good solutions provider will submit a proposed
roles and responsibilities list of resources outlining expertise of each
individual and time allocation needed for your project. Although solutions
providers often do not assign individuals to a project until contracts
are fully signed and executed, you should still know what kind of talent
will be dedicated to your project.
Review the proposed roles and responsibilities to make sure all needs
will be met by the solutions provider and your internal staff. Raising
questions before signing a contract will help manage everyones expectations
and the bottom line.
