Assignment: Supplier Selection “Best Pizza in Town”

You and your group have decided to order a pizza for dinner. The problem you face is that you do not want to have to order a separate pizza for each member. The task you face is to determine not only what to order, who to order it from but that is has to be affordable. After all, you are all students on a limited budget.

This discussion is taking place as a team involved in Public Sector Procurement. You, therefore, have to obtain the pizza in accordance with the principles that govern competitive procurement in the public sector.
This is a multi-part team project.
