Use this form to create the criteria for evaluating the performance of a vendor.

Before you create evaluation criteria, you must create vendor evaluation criterion groups. As you create the individual rating criteria, assign similar or related criteria to a criterion group. For example, create a criterion group named Rate all vendors, and then create rating criteria such as Quality, Price and Delivery time that you and requesters use to rate all vendors in any procurement category.
