Single Answer Multiple Choice

You are developing a qualified sellers list for your project. Which source would you NOT use to gather information about prospective sellers?

A. trade associations
B. trade publications
C. interviews with competitors of prospective sellers
D. site visits

Answer:
C. interviews with competitors of prospective sellers

Tutorial:
You would not use interviews with competitors of prospective sellers to gather information about the prospective sellers. This would not be an ethical approach to gathering information on prospective sellers.
All of the other options are incorrect because they represent valid sources you might use to gather information to develop a qualified sellers list. A qualified sellers list is a documented list of potential sellers that have the capability of performing the desired work. A qualified sellers list is usually developed in the Request Seller Responses process. Other sources include the Internet, library directories, or contact with previous customers of the prospective sellers.

Reference:
1. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge – PMBOK Guide 3rd Edition – Project Procurement Management – 12.3.2 Request Seller Responses: Tools and Techniques

These questions are derived from the Self Test Software Practice Test for PMI exam #CAPM3ED – Certified Associate in Project Management, Third Edition
