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!
Here is a walk through, this was created using Iorad, another tool that I find extremely helpful!
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.
