WHAT IS Vendor Assessment / Vendor Evaluation Audit?

Vendor assessment is an independent systematic audit of key departments in a vendor or manufacturer work to assess the effectiveness of its management system and manufacturing processes, and how it transforms into quality and reliability of product delivery.

WHY IS Vendor Assessment / Vendor Evaluation Audit IMPORTANT?

Advanced manufacturing practices and modern construction techniques emphasise the importance of outsourcing of products and services. Effective supply chain is vital for compliance to internationally recognised quality standards and to meet the deadline of projects.

Vendor assessment is an effective tool to independently verify the capacity and capability of a supplier to meet project specifications and deadline before the awarding of contract. It could also be a continuous evaluation process during manufacturing and supply of first consignment to the buyer as per specifications.
