  • Product Description

    This hypothetical case examines the computer procurement process in a medium-sized city. It focuses on the relative flexibility with which the "Metro West" Information Services Department is able to deal with vendors--particularly compared to the rules which govern its counterpart federal agencies.

    Learning Objective:
    The case challenges students to consider the relative importance of encouraging public initiative versus that of discouraging white-collar public corruption.
