The steps of the consortium process are flexible. Whether each step is a part of the process depends upon the complexity of the consortium activity and the procedural decisions made by the group. However, most of the 20 steps detailed here are likely to be applied and all should be considered. Steps one through 10 cover the initiation of the program and formation of the first consortium. Steps 11 through 15 include the pilot project, agreement on specifications, requests for quotation, joint negotiations, and contract award. The remaining steps address documentation summary, performance data, evaluation of the process, assessment, reports, and program expansion.
