18. Does the Framework clash with the vendor’s methodology?

The vendor provides their own set of documents and forms to use during the implementation. Is the ISCG Framework competitive with what the vendor provides?

No, the IT Guidance Framework is complementary to what your vendor will provide. Some of the vendor’s forms may overlap those in the Framework. For example, the vendor will provide a project plan, which should then be merged into the project plan contained in the Framework. Whether the vendor’s project plan or the Framework’s project plan ultimately survives is not as important as making sure that the tasks from both plans are included in your final project plan.

In addition, the ISCG Framework goes much deeper than what your vendor provides. The vendor’s tools are primarily related to the specific tasks on which they will be working with you.
