3. SCOPE DEFINITION

Select a Suitable Elder’s Home to provide a dinner

• After gathering several opinions regarding different categories of Elders’ homes in our
neighborhood from our group members, we all came to a mutual agreement to select an
Elder’s home, namely Sarvodaya Suwasetha Elder’s Home situated in No 80, Sri Sumangala
Road, Rathmalana. When inquired, we also found that, they are struggling to secure and
maintain a daily supply of meals and rations, in order to look after their inmates, even at a
minimalistic standard. During our first visit, we noted that the Elders home consists of 21
elders.

Obtain the approval from relevant Authority.

• Our approval process will be divided into two parts, first one being the approval from the
School of Accounting and Business, The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka in
order to consider the proposed project as our practical project to comply with the
continuous assessment under the Project Management Subject.

• In addition, the second approval would need to come from the Elder’s home to offer the
dinner and to check and obtain availability on 23rd June 2018 to provide the said dinner and
to execute our project.

Purchase Cooking, Painting deliverables and appoint a painter to paint the inside walls of
kitchen

• The main officer in the elder’s home suggested that the staff themselves will take the
responsibility of cooking dinner for the elders and hence they have requested us to buy
some fruits, vegetables, rice and grains. They wish to have their kitchen painted and
therefore we have arranged for a mason to paint the kitchen and the relevant paint
materials to be supplied with a help of a team member working in the paint industry.
• Each members of the project team will contribute equally on the total cost involved in the
project.

Gift items to inmates including sanitary goods.

• We have decided to distribute a small gift pack to all elders at the end of the program. We
have planned to give out bathing accessories and sanitary items that could be a very useful
in their day-to-day life. Hence, we have decided to obtain bathing accessories at a
reasonable price from Cargills food city and sanitary items from selected suppliers who fit
our budget well.

Arrange Musical Instruments to entertain elders

• We thought it would be ideal to have a musical show with instruments to entertain the
elders. We thought that this could be a way to lift their minds off the sorrow and help them
enjoy the day.
