Pre- and post-contract planning services in a direct acquisition or an RFI/RFP scenario may include analysis of insourcing and outsourcing options, development of RFI/RFP content, creation of selection criteria, evaluation of providers, definition of contractual service level agreements (SLA), and overall management of the RFP lifecycle in order to:

* Establish clear corporate goals and objectives.
* Provide technology solutions that are aligned with specific business needs.
* Quantify estimated costs, benefits, ROI, and payback of IT investments.
* Clarify benefits and risks of short- and long-term investments.

Process Governance addresses executive commitment for change and identifies the critical factors that must be in place for a change to be successful.
