Critical Vendor-Contractor Evaluation ISO Template
The Procurement Manager should periodically (or as needed) evaluate critical vendors, using QP1120-3 CRITICAL VENDOR-CONTRACTOR EVALUATIONS. Categories on the Critical Vendor-Contractor Evaluation ISO Template should be based on such factors as:
The vendor’s performance history;
Number/percent of defects found – history of supplying quality products or services;
Ability to deliver on time, consistency of on-time delivery;
Record of delivering quantities ordered (back orders, etc.);
Vendor audit results; and more.
New vendors should be subject to a “probationary period”, the length of this period to be determined by the Procurement Manager and based on such factors as the criticality of the vendor’s services/materials. The Procurement Manager may put a vendor “on notice” (on probation) on the basis of the degree of nonconformity in a single incident, a series of nonconformities, or a detected trend toward nonconformity.
