  • Invoices correctly

Quantity -

Any problems with Vendors should be reported to the Purchasing Department by completing the Vendor Performance Form.

Outstanding Performance

If a department has received outstanding service from a Vendor, where the Vendor has performed above and beyond the expectations of the contractual agreement, and you would like that Vendor's performance recognized, complete the Vendor Performance Form.

Action by Purchasing

When you complete the online Vendor Performance Form it is automatically forwarded to the Purchasing Customer Advocate. The Purchasing Customer Advocate will contact the Vendor to discuss the report and obtain corrective action. You will be notified of the actions taken to resolve performance issues.

Vendor Performance Evaluation

Each year Purchasing evaluates Vendors who have received ten or more purchase orders in a fiscal year or an order equal to or greater than $25,000. Purchase Orders are reviewed for documentation indicating vendor performance concerns. Vendors who fail to perform in a satisfactory manner are notified and monitored for improvement. Vendors who fail to improve will not receive additional purchase orders. Completion of the Vendor Performance Form is a critical component in evaluating vendor performance.

You can assist in this process by -

  • Inspecting goods and services as soon as possible after delivery

  • Promptly accepting or rejecting goods or services

  • Document noncompliance issues

  • Report Vendor Performance concerns using the online Vendor Performance Form
