Here is a strategic vendor selection tool that I created a while back. Some of you might find this useful when comparing a number of potential vendors for a project or as a supplier of goods. Enjoy!
This Vendor Scoring system was adapted from Dr. Carter’s 10c Supplier Evaluation Model. Which evaluates potential vendors based upon the follow Criteria:
- Commitment to Quality
- Consistency of Performance
- Cash and Finance
- Control of Internal Processes
- Corporate Social Responsibility
Many of the questions that have been added are specific to software implementation partners. Feel free to add or subtract questions and requests for information in order to tailor the Scorecard for your specific needs.
