The purpose of this assignment is to provide justification of a capital purchase using decision-making skills, research, and data.
You are responsible for finding replacement capital pieces for the radiology department. You have just been notified that the MRI scanner machines are obsolete and need to be replaced. Compare and contrast different vendors and ROI using the “Vendor Information Sheet” resource.
Before analyzing the “Vendor Information Sheet,” what essential “items” should you consider before purchasing an item?
Using the “Vendor Information Sheet,” determine what a reasonable ROI is?
What are the minimum quality standards? Is there additional training required to operate the equipment?
Choose the vendor that fits the need of the hospital and has the best ROI. Justify your chosen capital purchase.
After comparing vendors, write a 250-500 word justification for the capital purchase to your vice president. Address the following:
Why would this be a good investment for the hospital?
What are the operating costs you took into consideration? Explain.
What facility considerations are involved regarding this new piece of equipment? Explain.
What is a reasonable ROI? What are the minimum quality standards?
What training options would need to occur?
Cite a minimum of three references to support your rationale.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
