Appraising suppliers for the purposes of short-listing them as viable business partners is the focus of this unit section.
Working with the best possible suppliers is essential for an organisation, particularly when the procurement items are critical to its operations, or involve a high degree of supply risk of expenditure. Knowing how to identify such suppliers and to assess their relative capabilities and degrees of motivation to do business with the organisation, a firm foundation can then be established for the organisation to develop productive supplier relationships over the long term.
