- Create an Excel spreadsheet or an open-source equivalent that specifies vendor name, name of acquisition tool, raw format, validation methods, and overall description of tool.
- Create a report to accompany the spreadsheet that recommends two tools based on your research. Justify your answer.
- Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as quality resources.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
- Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
- Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
