Working with other vendors in the project

When working in a project that involves other vendors, we must identify the dependencies we may have with them in terms of development efforts, testing and deployment. With the master project plan that only derives from the Client, vendors should keep track of their own project plans and own efforts and share with the Client/other vendors as to derive a more realistic project timelines.

When comes to accounting module of the project, we must be prepared to get all the needed requirements and timelines from other vendor so that we can better prepared to negotiate and looking forward to the go-live date so that we can send the billable invoices to the Client for payments. Right now, we have pending invoices to bill to the Client and the vendor mentioned that they need to clarify the other portion of the testing that we had done for the past 3 weeks and this might delay the go-live of the accounting module by 2 weeks.

As observed from many inter-dependent projects, the right approach is to prepare our own project timelines of delivery, preparing the internal testing and UAT readiness (to be included in our development plan)with the Client weeks before the master UAT starts. At least we are not binded with the master timeline from the Client.
