Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is A.

The project team should first conduct a make-or-buy analysis to determine if the item can be produced in-house or is it more viable to be procured. A make-or-buy analysis doesn't necessarily have to be formal and in-depth. In some situations, this analysis and decision can be, and in fact, is a "split second" decision by the sponsor or project manager. For example: "Based on my knowledge of our company, there is no way that we can make this item in-house, so let's go ahead and buy it."
