I have been a business analyst for the past 5 years in technology. I work with the project manager on projects and have managed parts of the project under the PM, such as identifying stake holders and working with them to gather requirements and develop the scope documentation.
From there, I manage the requirements documentation and manage user testing and acceptance.

With that said, do you think that based on my responsibilities, do I qualify to take the pmp exam? And if I do, would I be considered a project contributor?

Candace,

Based on the description of your responsibilities I believe that you qualify for The CAPM Exam, but not for The PMP Exam.

I base this on the PMP Examination Content Outline, which is this document here: www.pmi.org/en/Certification/Project-Man...%20Outline_2010.ashx

It describes in detail all the tasks that a PM/PMP should be responsible for on a project. And if you compare this to your description you will see that there is only a small match. You are a contributing team member with certain responsibilities but you are not the PM.
