Sample Item #5.


This Statement of Work concerns developing a District Manager training program for the Absolute
Service Company. The work involves two major Tasks. There must be an external evaluation before
beginning work on the next Task. The project deadline is October 1, 2006. If the deadline is not met,
the client will not pay for the project.
Task A requires a team to develop training materials. Current plans are that a six person team will
work six weeks to complete the Task. The external evaluation will take one week to complete. If the
material created in Task A passes evaluation, work on Task B will begin immediately.
Task B will require a team of ten to conduct District Manager training sessions. This Task will take
eight weeks to complete. An external evaluation of the training sessions will be conducted prior to the
project deadline and will take one week to complete.
The costs for each Task are $2,500 per team member per week, plus materials and other direct
costs. The contract is fixed price, so any overruns on labor costs will not be compensated by the
client.
You find that doubling the team size for each task cuts the time for the Task by 1/3. If you double the
team for Task A only, given the project deadline shown above, what is the latest date Task A can
start?
a) June 1
b) June 15th
c) July 1
d) July 15th
