Hi all,

I noticed that the close procurements process is gone from the PMBOK 5th - 3.1 chart in the 6th edition. Is this just lumped in with the close project or phase as well as the conduct procurements? What is important to note about this change in the new exam? When can a procurement close? Is it assumed during close project or phase? Can it be closed during conduct procurements?

Hi Daniel,

Closing procurement is performed under the Control Procurement process. You can find it on Pg 499 in the PMBOK 6
