Vendor Evaluation Template


This four-page Vendor Evaluation template is for developing a structured assessment of a vendor’s performance. It supports project procurement management.

This Vendor Evaluation template will help you perform a structured assessment of a vendor’s performance. The vendor evaluation is an important tool for  determining whether to continue the business relationship or whether to recommend the vendor to other organizations. For this reason, it remains in the vendor file for future, organizational use.

This template is developed to support a wide range of project types and sizes. Specifically, it:

  • it begins with a section that captures relevant project information;

  • includes sections for evaluating timeliness, responsiveness, courteousness, flexibility, capacity, culture, compliance, quality, communication, cost, scope, risk, and willingness to engage again.
