About the Edition

The Wenger Taxonomic Model provides a means to classify goods procured by the Federal Government so as to provide procurement professionals with strategic buying insight. Several aspects of the model have been explored by various researchers. These researchers have found that the model is both valid and useful. This study focuses on application of the Wenger Taxonomic Model to Commercial Off-the-Shelf computer hardware equipment procured by a specific buying activity. It proposes a slightly different version of the Wenger Taxonomic Model. It also proposes five areas where the model would help procurement professionals make smarter Information Technology investments. These areas are: cost-benefit analysis source selection evaluation, warranty purchases, contingency contracting, and evaluating the organizational impact of Information Technology acquisitions.
