Have the team analyze the comments and create a final document; compile a list of possible vendors; preliminary review of all vendor proposals; record business requirements and vendor requirements; assigns importance value for each requirement; assign a performance value for each requirement; list rank your priorities along with alternatives; supplier selection criteria for a paiticular product or service category should be defined by a "cross-functional" team of representatives from different sectors of your organization; include representatives from purchasing, quality, engineering and production; include personnel with technical/applications knowledge of the product or service to be purchased; Visits to the supplier by management and/or the selection team; and on Service Delivery ;consider the customers' needs; be prompt by responding as quickly as possible to all inquiries; provide technical support availability and willingness to participate as a partner in developing and optimizing design and a long-term relationship; track record for business-performance improvement.
