BLM234 Fundamentals of Purchasing & SCM – Final Paper Fall 2022
Here is the general topic area for this semester’s paper:
“Procurement: Its role in dealing with global supply chain disruptions”
Given the times that we are currently living in, with global supply chain disruptions, it is certainly timely and appropriate to take a long hard look at what is expected from the Purchasing organization to ensure a more resilient supply chain.
For this assignment put yourself in the place of being a VP of Procurement for either a public or private sector organization in government or private industry. Virtually, “all of a sudden” you were called upon to make things happen. No more normal days ahead for you and your team for quite some time. There are many things to think about such as but not limited to: abnormally high demand for specific items, availability of raw materials to continue to produce and then subsequently ship finished goods, a supply chain which was becoming depleted, consumer hoarding of essentials, single versus multiple sourcing, international versus domestic suppliers, etc. Did your suppliers/partners let you down or was this virtually unavoidable? Availability was also hindered by some companies shutting down to protect their employees during the pandemic, thus reducing their inventories to fill committed orders. How will you respond? Select an industry, company and/or a product(s) and talk about what you would have done to minimize the impact on those that were depending upon you. Did most companies do a good job?
Here are a couple of thought provoking questions to help get you started. Should you have seen this coming? Did your existing policies and actions hamper your company’s ability to respond more effectively? Now that you can at least glance in the rearview mirror what will you change going forward.
Begin by applying what you are learning in this course as well as the additional research that you will need to do.

The paper explains how the structure of an organization impacts its effectiveness in the context of critical circumstances.
Today’s business environment requires leaders to have competency in designing organizations to effectively achieve strategic goals. In this task, you will choose an organizational structure that will positively affect a venture’s ability to effectively achieve goals and explain your choice in relation to the four factors that impact organizational design. You will also be asked to evaluate how choosing a different structure could impact organizational outcomes.
You have decided to create a consulting business to address increasing market needs for sustainability and innovation in the community. You want to emphasize how businesses can make incremental changes in the workplace to achieve sustainable results that increase profitability and brand reputation. The mission of the company is to “facilitate sustainable social, economic, and environmental development opportunities for the good of businesses in the community.” The company should be designed as a mission-driven, for-profit organization that will create partnerships that result in sustainable changes for the community. You would like your business to be successful so that your consulting firm can raise your city’s ranking in the “Most Sustainable and Innovative Communities” list from the top 20% of all U.S. communities to the top 10%.
Before you design a business venture plan that includes its organizational design, you will identify how the business will generate revenue. You will assess the sustainability and innovation needs for 30 businesses in the local community in the first year. You will then share the results of those assessments with all business stakeholders to generate feedback that will be used to develop and implement proposals for consulting. You would also like to hire three university students as part-time interns to help you develop an organizational structure. You are interested in seeking investors in the business community who would like to take a leadership role in the business and its decision-making.
You are excited about this opportunity and begin considering the organizational structure for your consulting business.
Note: Additional employees may be hired in the future.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. The originality report that is provided when you submit your task can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
Tasks may not be submitted as cloud links, such as links to Google Docs, Google Slides, OneDrive, etc., unless specified in the task requirements. All other submissions must be file types that are uploaded and submitted as attachments (e.g., .docx, .pdf, .ppt).
A. Describe an organizational structure you would select for the consulting business in the scenario by doing the following:
1. Describe the main features of one of the following organizational structures that would meet the needs of the consulting business and explain how this structure applies to the scenario.
2. Using the chosen organizational structure described in part A1, explain how each of the following four factors work within the chosen organizational structure for the consulting business in the scenario:

Create a scope of work document: Must include all trades required for project and sub tasks for those trades. Include durations if you like. Thank you! I will submit the drawings where you can calculate what trades will be needed and the sub tasks required.
For this activity, choose a non-profit organization that you can get IRS Form 990 information from. This can be one of the organizations you’ve been working with, or can be a new one altogether. Usually the Form 990 is posted on their website under “About Us” and then “Financial Information.” Be sure to get the 990 Form, not the “Annual Report” or another form. If the 990 is not available, then choose another organization for this activity. Review the 990 Form, and write an analysis of the organization’s finances. Here are some questions for you to consider:
Does the organization appear to have diversified sources of revenue?
How vulnerable or unpredictable are these sources likely to be?
What were its major categories of expenses for the year shown? What unforeseen expenses could arise?
What kinds of assets does it hold?
Does it have debt?
What produces its cash flow for the year shown?
Does it have endowment or other permanently restricted assets?
I expect this activity to be completed in 3-5 double-spaced pages.
